Freeride Ankogel Mallnitz

Powder, powder.. and more powder! As most of the mountain is facing the North, the powder is conserved there for a long time.

Freeride Ankogel

Freeriding at Ankogel is mostly connected to one thing: the well known tours on the Northern side where the powder stays for a long time. After a short ascent there’s a huge choice of great Northern downhills. But also on the Southern side you’ll get a great freeriding experience. In the same day you could first swing down the Southern side on firn and later find the perfect powder downhill on the Northern side – yes, all in one day!

The skiing area itself has only two gondola systems and two drag lifts, however, it opens the doors to a huge variety of downhills. Ankogel is perfect for skiing technique courses. For freeriding in the area some offpiste experience is needed, because most of the downhills are in a terrain with slopes of over 30 degrees. But that’s exactly what makes the area so interesting. Here you can swing down in perfect terrain. With a bit of ascent motivation even the majestic Ankogel can be crossed which gives the possibilty to conquer one of the best downhills in the whole area. A playground without limits!
