When it comes to freeriding, the Diamond of the Alps once again lives up to its name. Thanks to the altitude and the snow guarantee, powder cracks and freeride beginners can expect a winter-white playground from November to April.

Freeriding involves some dangers. You are off the beaten track, skiing through untouched nature: so it is all the more important to carry the right safety equipment. Avalanche transceiver, avalanche backpack, shovel, probe, avalanche airbag as well as first aid utensils are recommended. You can rent avalanche transceivers and avalanche backpacks at Riml Sports..
