SENSE THE OPEN SPACE ON THE HIGHEST OF TIROL

FACE THE WILD SIDE

THE PITZTAL WILD FACE IN THE PITZTAL IS A MUST FOR EVERY FREERIDER!

Freeriding on the Pitztal Glacier

The yearning for open space, freedom, venturing down new slopes and overcoming your sporting limits while doing so. That rush you get when venturing down the untouched slopes of the Pitztal Glacier is an indescribable feeling of adrenaline for freeriders. A feeling which is both priceless and perceptible at the same time. The Pitztal Glacier is a well-known spot in the freeride scene. The 3.440 metre high Hinterer Brunnenkogel has everything you need for the feeling of freeriding even in the early winter months: Natural snow, powder and unique descents!

The premium class variant

The Taschachferner valley descent leads past glacier fractures and crevasses from the Mittelbergjoch through the Taschachtal valley to Mittelberg to the valley station of the Gletscherexpress. We strongly recommend that everyone who wants to enjoy this impressive tour is accompanied by a mountain guide who is familiar with the area. The Pitztal Mountain Guide Office or the Ski School’s Freeride Center Pitztal offers guided descents.

In the gullies of the Wild Face

The descent from the 3.173-metre-high Mittagskogel, the valley head of the Pitztal, has been an insider tip for a long time. But since the starting signal for what is arguably the world’s toughest freeride race, the Pitztal Wild Face, those hungry for deep snow have been making a pilgrimage to the tranquil Pitztal. The final stretch of the Pitztal Wild Face falls over 1.500 metres in altitude.

Your off-road check

Freshly snow-covered powder slopes, radiant sunshine and descents that are still pristine. This is where the temptation to plunge yourself down the slope is the greatest. But unfortunately, this is where the dangers are also at their greatest. This is why you need very good skills to be able to move in the open terrain:

  • Never venture into the terrain alone
  • Check the avalanche report before heading out into the open ski area
  • Also keep yourself informed about how the weather is developing
  • Ensure safe handling of avalanche transceiver and probe
  • Descend slopes with a gradient of 30° or more at intervals of 30m
  • Descend slopes with a gradient of 35° or more one at a time
  • Look out for hazardous spots and wind drifts
  • You should refrain from making a descent if visibility is poor!

When leaving the secured slopes, make sure you have the following basic equipment with you at all times:

  • Avalanche transceiver
  • Shovel
  • Probe
  • Mobile phone for emergency calls
  • Airbag system recommended
