Days of Freedom
Freesports Arena Krippenstein Are you ready?
For 30 kilometres of the finest deep snow? For the longest ski run in Austria? The Freesports Arena Krippenstein at the Lake Hallstatt has been chosen by SnowPlanet magazine as the hot spot of the freeriding scene – pushing great names such as Cortina, St. Moritz and Arlberg into the lower ranks! Beyond the ski runs and cliff drops, the ‘Stoa’, as the locals respectfully call this mighty mountain, provides inspiration with an exciting outdoor programme of 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 on skis or boards, the numerous variants on offer in Freesports Arena Krippenstein will inspire any powder snow fan! Schönberg, Imisl and Eisgrube provide rough rocky ridges, a variety of slopes and discerning forested sections, while the 1500 metres altitude of each run requires fitness and concentration.
‘Days of Freedom’ are an integral part of Freesports Arena Krippenstein – when simply anything goes: skis and boards, on and off-piste, freeride training and snow camps, snow-shoe hiking, ski tours, ice-climbing, dog-sled rides, paragliding. Or maybe you’d prefer to head down the pistes on a mountain bike … Or just watch the pros at one of the many spectacular events? Or maybe even some extreme Alpine lodge sitting!!??
