Backcountry Skiing or Freeriding.
Picture this; freezing cold weather.
pop quiz: the lyric above is from what song and artist? clue: all you want is parallel lines.
So the Freeride World Tour seems to regularly take the decision to move from Fieberbrunn to somewhere with better weather. Seeking out more snow or safer backcountry conditions; it seems they often don’t fare too well there either.
Thank goodness everyone out in the backcountry was OK. That all the safety precautions and plans were executed to perfection.
Now, I have no plans to petition for a veterans category of the Freeride World Tour, but we had a absolutely fabulous day backcountry skiing around Fieberbrunn. We were ably guided in our venture by Hans of Widmanns Skischule.
Fieberbrunn is part of the Kitzbuhler Alpen Ski region in Austria.
The Kitzbühel Alps have a great combination of good snow conditions, with lots and lots of snow making equipment, and gorgeous and authentic mountain villages.
Not only does Fieberbrunn host the Freeride World Tour each year, but the area is a mecca for freeride, backcountry skiers for the whole ski season.
pop trivia: Let’s do it again next week. “Picture this; freezing cold weather”, taken from ‘Picture This‘ from the 1978 ‘Blondie’ album Parallel Lines.
