4* FWQ Big Mountain Hochfügen
10th of February 2018
Have you discovered the magic of freeriding in Hochfügen and become addicted to the feeling of fresh powder snow under your skis or snowboard? Then why not join us at Big Mountain Hochfügen at the end of January for an unforgettable race and party weekend where you can pick up a few new tricks and styles from the pros?
The “Big Mountain” in the Zillertal valley is actually the daunting Hochfügen Ostwand with a gradient of up to 40 percent. As part of the Freeride World Qualifier Tour, this spectacular mountain face is providing 70 freeriders from the up-and-coming international freeriding elite with countless opportunities to achieve perfect lines. The event is a key day in the Freeride World Tour Qualifier (FWQ) racing calendar, as riders will compete in the highest racing category (4*) to gain crucial race ranking points and to win prize money totalling 10,000 euros. The Spectator Area at 8er Alm provides the perfect setting for following the top-class freeriding competition up close, while in the neighbouring Expo Area, the sponsors present the latest freeriding equipment and accessories.
