Freeriding in the Montafon, Vorarlberg

Untouched freedom awaits in the ski areas beyond the pistes.

Impressive landscapes and untouched slopes have a special attraction
High-Alpine deep snow descents, various terrains, spectacular cliffs and steep gullies - the Montafon in the south of Vorarlberg has everything that off-piste riders dream of in the Alps. The ski areas - especially Silvretta Montafon - provide athletic challenges beyond the prepared routes.

When skiing and snowboarding in open terrain, the proper handling of the topic of Alpine safety is very important. If you want to rely on a pro when it comes to selecting a spot while taking the current weather and snow conditions in Vorarlberg into account, you can turn to a mountain guide. They will safely accompany you through the terrain on guided tours.
