Learning by doing with the pros

You would like to optimize your ski technique for off-piste skiing?
Then these trainings in different levels are perfect for you! In combination with the latest equipment you will not immediately become a freeride pro like Markus Eder, but you will make fast and fun progress. This is what the state-certified Vivalpin freeride pros stand for, who have thousands of meters of downhill altitude and kilometers in their legs and are up to date in terms of methodology, tactics and risk management. To avoid overloading your ski technique training with content, you can explore the topics of snow and avalanche awareness as well as risk management from the comfort of your own home. A proven avalanche expert takes you by the hand in one of our popular online trainings and prepares you optimally for your off-piste adventures.

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.

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...
