The main criteria for the selection of a free ride area is the snow certainty, thus the Stubaital valley with its glacier skiing area has become a fixed component of our free ride programme. The ideal geographical location and the therefore easy arrival, both from this or the other side of the Brenner pass, are also strong points for the Stubaital valley. As experience shows, due to the great altitude there are perfect snow powder conditions already in the early winter. In case of extremely bad weather, which might prevents us from skiing at the glacier, we are able to pull some good alternative routes out of a hat in order to allow best working conditions in any case. During this course we will pay particular attention to the optimization of the descending techniques in the free terrain.
