THE AUSTRIAN FREERIDE MECCA –
FACES, LINES & UNTRACKED POWDER
Freeride means more than just making a trail in the snow. Freeride means feeling freedom when you hear the powder crunching under your skis. Freeride gets the adrenaline pumping in your body as soon as you catch sight of the slope you’re about to ski. And it also means the feeling of happiness you feel after the perfect run. The Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn is considered a true freeride mecca. Countless off-piste skiing options combine with the breathtaking backdrop of the surrounding mountains. Faces, lines and untracked powder – that’s freeriding at the Home of Lässig!
“Easy up – Wild down” is the motto of the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn.

Here, the powder snow and the dreamlike deep snow slopes are powdered to the max. Also because of the excellent infrastructure: state-of-the-art equipment for rent, guides for the ultimate off-piste kick, courses for beginners and advanced skiers.

The conditions here are ideal: on the one hand a ski area with wild contours, on the other extensive deep snow slopes.
Freeride World Tour
The Freeride World Tour (FWT) will also make a stop in Fieberbrunn in winter 2022/23. The freeride mecca Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn hosts the tour’s only stop in the German-speaking region. Since 2011, the steep and rocky north slope of the Wildseeloder has been a fixture on the FWT calendar, and it is here that the preliminary decision in the fight for the World Cup titles will be made. The world’s best freeriders have to climb around 40 minutes to the summit of the Wildseeloder before they plunge into the 620-metre slope from the start at 2,118 metres. There they overcome a slope gradient of up to 70 degrees. Those who want to stay in the title fight have to overcome this slope. In addition to the legendary competitions, visitors can expect an extensive supporting program throughout the week.
