If you have ever looked at your tracks left on the undisturbed powder-snow slope, breathless and surrounded by stirred up powder snow at the end of the piste, then you know this was the moment when you became addicted to the fascination with freeriding. Thanks to its snow-reliable location at high altitude, the Kitzsteinhorn attracts freeriders to the glacier at the beginning of winter. Five well-marked tracks are located near the ski lifts and offer a variety of terrain features. From “Ice Age” to “Jump Run”, freeriders of all skill levels will find the ideal terrain for their perfect track.


A cross-country skiing trail, up to one kilometre long, is located on a glacial plateau at an altitude of 2,900 m above sea level. It is a meeting place for all Nordic fans in autumn, early winter and spring as soon as the cross-country trails in the valley close.


You can get to the legendary ski slope No. 14 via ski slope No. 13, with the starting point being the Kristallbahn valley station.

The narrow ski slope with an incline of 63% is about 1,000 metres long and goes down 290 altitude metres to Langwiedboden. Once you accept the challenge, you can’t back out! Once “Black Mamba” gets you, there’s no escape! However, experts that love steep slopes will find their rewarding challenge on this black piste.
