    Freeride Transalp

With ski over the Alps

What an undertaking! We don't want to get Hannibal involved again, but a crossing of the Alps is and remains something very special. Especially with skis and if the ascents are kept within limits. A maximum of 2 hours of ascent per day is possible, but it is definitely worth it in view of the descents. 
Directly adjacent to the Bavarian Pre-Alps is the Rofan mountain range with the 2,259 m high Rofanspitze. It can be reached from Lake Achensee and from the Erfurter Hütte without too much effort and is the gateway to a freeride wonderland. Summit after summit, it goes on and on from here, always to the south and always following the best slopes and the best snow. In fact, you are then after 4 days and after tens of meters of altitude on the main ridge of the Alps and have the decision to swing either further over fantastic wide slopes to South Tyrol or at right angles over no less fantastic slopes in the Valsertal. Or as a combination of both with a return ascent via the Alpeiner Scharte...

Note on program changes: 

All courses and guided tours are conscientiously organized and carried out in accordance with the safety standards of the Vivalpin Mountain and Ski School with qualified specialists (e.g. mountain and ski guides, mountain hiking guides, etc.). The provisional tour program may be adjusted for safety-related reasons, such as bad weather, dangerous conditions, unforeseen natural events or inadequate conditions of the participants. The final program will be decided by the guide on site.

Very good skiing skills in any snow and condition for long ski days and up to about 2 h ascent.

"Skiing across the Alps - that is and remains a special challenge. The ski areas in the long-drawn-out Zillertal are the ideal booster for this, taking you immediately from one powder slope to the next. The crowning finale is the final descent to South Tyrol or the Vals Valley."
