Our freeride checkpoints are located at the main access points to open terrain. They act as reminders and a final warning before you go out there.
Freeride checkpoints: the open terrain begins here. After this point, you are responsible for your own safety. The panels show maps and important information on inclines, what to do in emergencies and contact telephone numbers. Make sure you review the following there:
If any of the above give you pause for thought – always choose the safer option. You can obtain any help and advice you need from the Freeride Info Point Hochfügen. You may even be lucky and meet the Ski Friends powered by Dynastar out and about. The’ll show you the best spots in the Zillertal freeride paradise Hochfügen and guide the way. If you’ve never been out in deep snow before, we recommend first practising in the Hochfügen Starter Area, which has been specifically designed to give beginners a taste of what it is like in open terrain and also provides initiation in avalanche-related skills.
Check your avalanche transceiver is working properly at the two electronic transceiver checkpoints at the summit stations of the 8-seater Jet lift and the Zillertal Shuttle before heading out into open terrain.
