Freeriding in Zauchensee, Salzburg

Freeriding for everyone! Zauchensee offers not just challenging pistes but a great introduction to off-piste skiing. There is a multitude of places where you can try out the powder within a safe distance of the piste. For freeride and powder fans with a bit more experience, there are marked non-pisted ski routes. The real pros take on the Schwarzwand with its drops, moguls, tree sections and cliff jumps. The east-face especially, guarantees adrenalin kicks – it has everything from small lips to 7-m jumps.

Safety first in the Alpine landscape! Before you start your freeride tour in the Zauchensee-Flachauwinkl ski area, check the snow and avalanche reports. Knowledge about avalanches, having the right equipment and respecting closed avalanche areas is of the utmost importance. Skischools in Zauchensee, Salzburg, offer guided powder tours with basic training in avalanche risks. Freeski and mountain guides can also be booked - a sensible safety investment!
