background

Gargellen Austria

Hidden up the valley from the larger ski area of Montafon in the Voralberg this small 4 lift resort packs a big punch when it comes to terrain. With some of best tree riding in the Alps and amazing in resort freeride terrain we've got all weather conditions covered. Plenty of touring option over the boarder into Switzerland make it the perfect location for an early March Splitboard Freeride week. 

Course

Our Splitboard Freeride course is all about maximising conditions and involves a bit of everything, shredding from the lift, short boot packs and splitboard touring days. Whatever the conditions throw at us we'll find the best powder possible! Focusing on splitboard touring skills, along with developing backcountry safety skills and the ability to read and ride natural terrain, this week is perfect for those looking to get a taste for splitboarding and those already bitten by the bug and looking to develop their backcountry riding. Typically we'll Splitboard for 2 out of the 5 days depending on conditions.

Accommodation

Hotel Wulfenia is a small family run hotel by local couple Mani and Helen, who provide the perfect traditional yet modern Austrian experience. Spacious and comfortable with traditional Austrian cooking and home brewed beer this is everything I love about Austria. 

Considerations

Be prepared to hike most days with a minimum of 500 vertical metres on 2 out of the 5 days. A good level of fitness and powder riding experience are essential to maximise this week of adventure and powder.
