Do not go freeriding in Zillertal without the right equipment!
The cableway company is not longer responsible for you as soon as you enter open terrain. In unsecured areas you are responsible for your own safety. For this reason, you need to prepare for your trip into the Zillertal freeriding paradise. It is essential to have the right emergency equipment with you and know how to use it.
What equipment do you need? First and foremost the protective equipment that even "normal” skiers should use - a helmet and back protector are absolutely essential. Then there's the state-of-the-art avalanche rescue package, consisting of a shovel, probe, first aid package and of course an avalanche transceiver. All these things are best stored in an avalanche backpack. The Freeride Info Point Hochfügen offers a wide range of emergency equipment for sale or hire.
The best equipment will not help if you do not know how to use it correctly. You can learn and train how to behave correctly in an emergency and how to use the avalanche equipment properly through various courses offered in Hochfügen. You can also take advantage of the opportunity to perfect your skills for free on the avalanche transceiver training zone powered by BMW. Then you’ll be fully prepared to enjoy your shredder fun!
