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 demanding ski traverses 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 Dolomites-Matterhorn, the
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 some of the best in the Northern Alps and need no introduction.
The descent over the "New World" is unparalleled in the Alps and the overall challenge is only something for ski experts with strong nerves. You have to assess your skiing skills exactly, because the steepness of 45° in the exposed terrain requires not only an excellent but also a safe skiing technique. The rock bar with the vertical rappelling point gives the tour

Ski tours in the Schmirn Valley
The Schmirntal is a side valley at the Brenner and separated from the well-known Zillertal "only" by some peaks like Kaserer or Olperer. Never heard of it? That's what insider tips are all about. But fantastic ski tours through sparse high forests, free powder slopes and on lonely touring peaks await you. Another highlight is the Vivalpin base at the end of the valley in Padaun at
Ötztal Haute Route
Similaun (3,599 m), Weißkugel (3,739 m) and Wildspitze (3,774 m) are among the highest Tyrolean peaks. And even more: with skis they can be strung together in a unique ski traverse. In between you can expect high alpine transitions, extensive glaciers and always fantastic ski terrain. The bases also fit well into the picture: particularly hospitable and with the best Tyrolean cuisine.
Triglav ski tours
Visevnik, Lipanski vrh and Sitna Glava: Just as fantastic as difficult to pronounce are the ski touring ascents to these around 2,000 meter high peaks in the Triglav National Park. Here, plenty of snow, sparse forests and generous slopes inspire. And this is only the beginning. For the peaks mentioned are more of an introduction to the world of Triglav. There dominate

A maximum of 2 hours of ascent per day is possible, but it is definitely worth it in view of the descents. Immediately adjacent to the Bavarian foothills of the Alps
