Freeride Safari

Mölltaler Gletscher - Sportgastein - Ankogel. 3 Areas. 1 Day. The best downhills. We connect it.
In one day we connect the best downhills of the 3 skiing areas Mölltaler Gletscher (glacier), Sportgastein and Ankogel – in sum we’re talking about over 4.500 height meters of freeriding downhills! In accordance to the weather and snow conditions we show you the best downhills of the three areas. It’s also possible to combine individual downhills of your preference. If you are not sure which downhills can be combined, just give us a call or write us and we’ll find the perfect runs for you together!
Meeting point is at 8:20 a.m. at the valley station of the skiing area Mölltaler Gletscher next to the big panorama board opposite of the ticket office. From the summit station of Mölltaler Gletscher we start our first 600 height meters long downhill as a warm-up, before we freeride 1.500 height meters all the way down the Schareck Eastern hillside to the valley station of the skiing area Sportgastein – this is said to be one of the longest freeriding downhills in Austria. From there we take the skilift up to the summit at Kreuzkogel and from there we take the 1.500 height meters long Northern downhill down to the street of Sportgastein – Böckstein. We hop on a bus to the train station of Böckstein and from there we get to the skiing area Ankogel. Here we start our last big downhill of the day: We reach the starting point of our freeride through a 15 minute ascent by foot. From there we swing down to the valley through the powder. To get to starting point we take the train another time.
For the Freeride Safari a solide skiing technique for offpiste downhills with steep slopes up to 35 degrees is a must. If you wish and the conditions allow, it is also possible to go for scarps up to 40 degrees (or even steeper). Also for the standard downhills you should have enough fitness for skiing in the terrain for a minimum of 30 minutes per freeriding downhill. In case you’d like to improve your skiing technique or check your fitness/skills, check out our Freeride Training Program.

“The Freeride Safari is our figurehead: With good weather the crossing of the Eastern Hohe Tauern is simply breathtaking! It combines great high alpine downhills in a unique way with fantastic scenic impressions; thereby we’re far away from the hurly-burly of the skiing slopes.”
