Freeride camp – Kitzbühel Alps

Your passion is the off-piste, deep powder, untracked slopes or simply the peace and quiet away from the ski resort? Then you might find just what you are looking for at our freeride camps.

Our fully certified mountain and ski guides will look after you and share their knowledge, which they keep up to date by continuous training and education. We offer 3 different skills levels at our camps to best be able to focus on individual needs.

 

Beginners:

You are currently skiing on well-groomed slopes and would like to learn how to ski off-piste? Then this is the right level for you. We will teach you everything you need to know about the right technique and behaviour off the marked slopes.

 

Advanced:

You have spent time off-piste and simply want to learn more about freeriding and safety precautions, while you refine your technique? Then you belong here. In this course we will take you on longer runs and also do a few little climbs with you.

 

Expert:

This level is geared towards those of you who spend most of their time off-piste and are pretty comfortable in this element. The descents will be more challenging and longer, and we will also do a few climbs.
