Generous freeride areas with a variety of powder and firn slopes in the Novatal make it the ideal freeride zone.

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. Even after just a short ascent, you can find ideal backcountry conditions – even several days after a snowfall.

The Hochjoch is a well-known freeride area, which is why Hochjoch also hosted the the Freeride World Tour. You can reach the freeride area on Hochjoch from Kapell on the Sennigrat chair lift.
