Snow is freedom: freeriding and fun parks

Skiers and snowboarders do agree on one thing: Lower Austria’s natural freeride terrain and spectacular fun parks are well worth a visit.

Lower Austrian mountainsides are like a white canvas for daring free riders. The fun parks are no less exciting but somewhat more defined; rails, kicker and obstacle await spirited jumpers there.

First one!

Being the first to make tracks on an untouched slope is every freerider’s daily objective. Far from the rest of the world, they glide through deep white powder and take in all the tranquility, leaving everyday life behind. Freeriding uniquely combines excitement and relaxation – and is completely in harmony with nature.

Crazy hills for crazy jumps

Butter box, obstacle and kicker – this mountain is sure to appeal to anyone who has been in a fun park. And pure fun is what the park offers, for astounded spectators as well as spectacular freestylers on boards or skis. It’s crazy the magic moves some pros can conjure up on the slopes! Our tip: Remember your camera!
