Freeride Level 1 - Zillertal 3000

Techniques in powder snow - Learn how to Freeride in Zillertal

Yes you can! Surfing the mountain in powder is definitely the highlight of every winter sports enthusiast
With the extra-wide rocker skis, it has become much easier to ski with 2 skies in deep snow. The negative tension of the freeride skier prevents diving. With an excess width of 100mm -130mm under the binding, the skis surf incredibly easily.
The snowboard has always been the powder instrument. I was surfing the powder with my board 40 years ago. The hardest thing for snowboarders to start with is getting up in deep snow. But with the right technology it is no longer a problem. As soon as you flote up, it is 100 times easier than on the icy artificial snow slopes.
Beginner slopes for freeriders are between 15 ° and 35 ° steep. The slopes should be as wide as possible and free of obstacles
Powder snow between 10 cm and 20 cm deep is the best conditions for beginners
With such huge deep snow slopes you are sure to get a powder addicted
