Putting your mark on the snow
Freeriding is well-liked for the sensation of absolute freedom it gives. Untouched slopes, covered in fresh snow, allow you to leave your personal mark. This mark is short-lived, however, and might be covered up overnight. The thrill of the ride will remain in your memory for much longer, though!
Freeriding is a comparatively new sport in the Alps. It is an adventurous alternative to skiing on the often overcrowded groomed slopes and runs. The untouched snowscapes are extremely inviting and a speedy ride down through fresh powder is a thrilling experience. The snow should be at least knee-deep. Freeriding is not about the way up, so riders mostly use ski lifts for the ascent to save all their energy for the descent.
Being at the right place at the right time guarantees fantastic freeriding experiences. For that, riders need to keep an eye on the weather and snow conditions throughout the winter months.
Finding the perfect slope isn't always easy. While fun is important, safety is more important. The most inviting slope might not be the safest. Safe freeriding requires profound knowledge about avalanches. Riders need to be able to judge the risks correctly and must know which slopes to ski on and which to stay away from.

Freeriding opens up countless new possibilities. Riders can choose between gentle rides down through powdery snow and tough, steep descents including rappelling maneuvers challenging ambitious Alpinists. 8,000 metres of difference in height a day become possible if the conditions are perfect. The supreme discipline in freeriding is heli-skiing, which can be practised in Switzerland and Canada, a paradise for freeriders.
