Freesports Arena Dachstein Krippenstein:
Are you ready? For 30 kilometers finest powder? For the longest descent in Austria?
Freesports Arena Dachstein Krippenstein in Dachstein, in the Upper Austrian Salzkammergut region has been chosen as a hot spot for the freerider scene by the magazine SnowPlanet! And as well as the runs and cliff drops, the Krippenstein is convincing with its exciting programme of outdoor events –far removed from the mainstream.
Thirty kilometres of off-piste variants and the snow-assuredness of the Dachstein glacier area whet your appetite for powder snow and wide boards. Whether it’s skiing or snowboarding, the many variants in the Freesports Arena Dachstein Krippenstein and the expanse of the Dachstein Plateau fills every powder snow fan with enthusiasm! Schönberg, Imisl and Eisgrube offer rough jagged ridges, slopes which are rich in diversity and select forest routes, 1500 metres altitude for each ride demands fitness and concentration.
Here are the areas to have fun on:
