How to use the Freeride Map©

The Freeride Map© is based on the maps of the Swiss Federal Office of Topography swisstopo and the Austrian Federal Office of Metrology and Surveying on a scale of 1:25'000. It contains all essential information about the terrain that you will need for planning and going freeriding.

The colour-coded freeride corridors show the areas where freeriding is possible. They are classified into three levels of difficulty: Blue, easy terrain for beginners. Yellow, requires advanced to very advanced ability. Red, extremely difficult terrain. Partially exposed – only for crack freeriders.

The sectors are classified according to the levels of freeriding ability. You must choose your route according to snow conditions and the current avalanche situation.

Red lines indicate ascents where ski skins or snowshoes must be used.

If you venture onto unsecured territory, you are putting yourself in danger. As a winter sports athlete, you are urged to recognise your own limitations and show respect for nature. Use the uphill and downhill routes marked on the map for walking and freeriding at your own risk.

Every freerider should carry an avalanche transceiver, avalanche probe, a strong shovel and other important safety equipment such as AvaLung, ABS airbag rucksack, RECCO reflectors or an avalanche ball.

Take special care at this point!

Extreme terrain.

Any fall might end deadly!


Wildlife protection - no freeriding!
