Freeride Info Base

The Freeride Info Base is the base camp for all powder fans. Here you get all information before you start your freeride runs.

Please note: The marked freeride routes on the Kitzsteinhorn are not prepared and not controlled. Before your run: always look for information at the Freeride Info Base at the Alpincenter! Here you can find out which routes are currently open and which are closed. The slopes beyond the routes are open areas, only entered at your own risk and, for which, no responsibility is taken by the lift company!
