Freeride Centre on Grasjoch
At the freeride centre in the summit station of the Grasjoch Bahn, we are happy to inform you about current conditions, freeride routes and guided tours. There is a permanent avalanche transceiver training area at the freeride centre for practising how to use the avalanche equipment. You can practise using your avalanche beacon at the avalanche transceiver checkpoints before starting your freeride adventure.
Freeride hotspots in the Montafon:
- Providing a seemingly endless amount of space to draw your lines, the Novatal is also ideally suited to freeride beginners. If they crave even more, freeriders can let off steam in the wide-open, hardly touched backcountry - and often for several days after a snowfall.
- The Hochjoch is a well-known freeride area, which is why the mountain has previously hosted the Freeride World Tour. The area surrounding the Kreuzjoch is the ideal freeride “play area” with its short but steep runs. The true heart of freeriding in Hochjoch is revealed as one moves towards Grasjoch – open white space as far as the eye can see…
- Gargellen is an optimal and diverse freeride terrain with easily accessible powder and firn slopes.
