Freeriding on Mount Penken

Deep Powder Lines

Can you think of anything better than leaving the first line in untouched snow? In the Mayrhofen Ski Resort, freeriders will be greeted by perfect conditions around the Wanglspitz and the Unterbergalm, which are both easily accessible via our lifts.

Before you venture into the backcountry, however, always remember that this is alpine terrain and that safety should be your number one priority. Therefore, freeriders should always check the weather and the avalanche conditions and take along the necessary equipment, including an avalanche beacon, a shovel, a probe, and a first-aid kit.


For all freeride enthusiasts we recommend the SAAC Camps, where experienced mountain guides and professionals will provide you with important information and valuable advice!

Dos and don'ts


Safety should be the number one priority for anyone venturing into the backcountry. Always remember: This is alpine terrain! Apart from good preparation by checking the avalanche situation and the terrain, every freerider should take his avalanche beacon, a backpack with back protector, an avalanche airbag as well as a probe and shovel.

Tip: The safest way to explore our backcountry is to hire an experienced mountain guide!
