KRIPPENSTEIN – EXTREME OFF-PISTE SKIING & SNOWBOARDING
With just 3 ski lifts and limited on-piste skiing the Krippenstein Freeride Arena is very much akin to Stuben am Arlberg and Sainte Foy or La Grave in France. But what lies behind the limited stats of the Krippenstein Freeride Arena is superb off-piste skiing and snowboarding and serious amounts of snow. Krippenstein Freeride Arena is little known outside of the region but is the centre for off-piste and freeriding in the area south of Salzburg. Local guides are essential and available for accessing this serious terrain. The Variante Schonberg offers routes that are a mixture of extreme steeps, cliffs, and tree skiing, all overlooking the nearby lake and often deep in powder. For any serious off-piste powder skier or snowboarder then the Krippenstein Freeride Arena has to be on their hit-list. For those visiting the Krippenstein Freeride Arena and wanting a more sedate experience, the ski piste back from the top station to the base station is 11km long. And for those wanting to plenty of intermediate skiing then the Dachstein West ski region is just down the valley and is a large intermediate ski area.
