Once groomed runs are no longer a challenge, you’ll be keen to discover the thrill of snowboarding on untouched slopes away from the piste. I will not only guide you in the mountains, but teach you about the equipment you’ll used off-piste and how to stay safe in the backcountry.

If groomed runs are no longer a challenge for you, you’ll be keen to discover the thrill of snowboarding on untouched slopes away from the piste. I will not only guide you save in the mountains, but on this Austria freeride snowboarding course St Anton am Arlberg I will also teach you about the equipment we use in the off-piste and how to stay safe in the backcountry.
We hike away from the ski area we’ll reach exciting freeride terrain with deep backcountry powder that most people never experience. Away from the busy slopes and noisy hustle of commercial ski areas, we find peace, solitude and untracked snow.
Freeriding around the Arlberg is like a dream come true for anyone who is looking for powder snow. Because of the geographical location, the Arlberg receives snow from many heavenly directions.
For this reason the Arlberg may call itself the snowiest region of Austria. The modern lift network is the biggest connected lift network of Austria which makes the Arlberg a real all-round area for Freeriding.
