The paradise for snowboarders in the countryside of Salzburg

in Zauchensee

Free-riding at the ski region Zauchensee/Flachauwinkl

Deep-snow pistes, ski guides and important information

A true powder paradise for free-riders on skis and snowboards can be found beyond the groomed slopes of the ski paradise Zauchensee. Zauchensee has long since become a genuine “hotspot” and the so-called Gamskogel “East” is the stuff that legends are made of for free-riders. Look forward to ski routes with great panoramic views, pristine deep-snow hills, numerous tree runs, moguls and many other off-piste experiences!

Safety first: secure free-riding at Ski amadé


If you stray from the safe pistes to unsecured routes and slopes, not only should you be highly skilled in handling your skis or snowboard, you should also have an open terrain experience. Acquire the necessary know-how with avalanche and snow profile courses in order to enjoy your deep-snow fun with as little risk as possible.

The right equipment is key for free-riding. Avalanche beacons, shovels and other special equipment ensure maximum safety on ski routes and in powder snow. Tip: Test the functionality of your avalanche beacon with special gadgets at the valley stations of Weltcuparena Zauchensee and Highport Flachauwinkl!

Beginners and free-riders with no open-slope experience should absolutely book a guided tour. Competent ski guides of the ski schools in Zauchensee are perfectly familiar with the weather, snow and avalanche conditions, and know which routes can be taken with “maximum fun” and zero risk.
