Freeriding at its best
Every skier knows the Zillertal. It is easily accessible and offers four magnificent ski areas. Vivalpin professional mountain guide and ski instructor Andi Stippler has explored the extensive off-piste area over the past few winters and has come to the conclusion that the endless freeride runs between Gilfert and Olperer are among the best in the northern Alps: The endless freeride runs between Gilfert and Olperer are among the best in the Northern Alps and definitely don't need to hide behind Andermatt, Disentis and co. If you want to immerse yourself in the Zillertal powder with Andi or another VIVALPIN freeride pro, then you've come to the right place.

Freeriding in the Dolomites and then also as a traverse? That sounds presumptuous. But thanks to the lifts and cable cars of Dolomiti Superski, this is one of the best high alpine ski crossings in the Alps. The ascents are surprisingly short and the descents long and exciting. You start with your guide directly at the foot of the Dolomite Matterhorn, the...

What an undertaking! We don't want to bring up Hannibal again, but crossing the Alps is and remains something very special. Especially on skis and when the ascents are limited. The maximum ascent per day is 2 hours, but this is definitely worth it in view of the descents. Right next to the Bavarian foothills of the Alps...
