Tucked away, off the groomed slopes is where you’ll find it: pristine powder snow, only waiting for you to leave the first tracks of the day. Discovering the best slopes in the most attractive freeride spots is easy now that locals have divulged their insider knowledge for all passionate winter sports fans for the first time. What made it possible was Freeride Maps – a new folding map for unlimited powder fun.
All accessible freeride slopes, drops and couloirs have been marked according to level of difficulty and divided into freeride corridors: Blue stands for easy terrain, yellow for advanced to high skills level and red for extremely difficult terrain. Short climbs are marked with a red line. What’s new: The map now covers the entire area! Aside from that Freeride Maps are made from tear and waterproof paper – which makes them almost indestructible. Quite practical for all those who plunge down snow-covered slopes.
Insider tips in pocket format
In addition to the best slopes on the map’s front you’ll find practical basic information on route planning, avalanche prevention and rescue services in two languages on the back. The handy pocket format (10 x 15) makes sure the Freeride Maps fit into every jacket or pants pocket, making it the trusted companion for every winter athlete. With a scale of 1 : 25,000 Freeride Maps show all the necessary information on the terrain. The maps are based on the respective region’s survey office.
For all digital natives who use their smartphone as no. 1 source of information and for navigation the Freeride Maps are now available as an app. For even more fun off piste!
