Freeride World Tour Qualifier
In late January, the up-and-coming international freeriding elite will descend upon the backcountry paradise of Hochfügen for the 4* Freeride World Tour Qualifier Big Mountain Hochfügen for the sixth time. Contest Day is Saturday 30 January 2016, starting at around 8.00 am (possible postponement till 2 January).
The “Big Mountain” is actually the daunting Hochfügen Ostwand with a gradient of up to 40 per cent. Marvel at the riders’ perfect lines, breathtaking cliff jumps and acrobatic tricks in the pristine powder snow. The spectator area on the 8er Alm is the perfect place to watch the spectacle, while in the neighbouring Expo Area, the exhibitors and sponsors will present the latest freeride equipment and accessories.
