Description

The Stubai - Arlberg Freeride Crossing is an incredible journey through the heart of the Alps, from the Stubai Glacier to Arlberg**.** Travel light and focus on the descents, using the lifts of the well-known ski areas to access the best lines. Along the way, we will find untracked powder in the backcountry of the glaciated main ridge.

Have you ever wondered if you could ski down the untracked back side of a freeride area? Our tour takes you there. Cross Tyrol in 6 days along the main ridge of the Alps, minimizing the climbs and maximizing the scenic and skiing experience.

Experience some of the best slopes as you cross incredible locations such as Stubai Glacier, Sölden, Pitztal Glacier, Kaunertal Glacier, Ischgl, and the Arlberg. We'll find the best lines along the glaciated main ridge of the Alps and even spend some time in Italy.

Travel in alpine style, focusing on the essentials: untracked powder in the backcountry of the massive ski areas. This is pure alpine free riding in a small group, with a new area to explore every day and new descents to discover.

This tour is for experienced freeriders who can handle all types of snow. You will need to be comfortable with steep terrain and challenging snow conditions. As is typical of ski touring, you will also have to climb some, but you will be skiing much more than you climb.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
