Freeride in Trentino: the wild side of winter!
Adventures in the snow and wilderness, away from it all
The “wildest” side of the mountains in winter: freeride or off-piste skiing. The fresh snow and the call of the wild will make you want to get up at the break of dawn, clip on your skis and race off for those steep snowy slopes, hunting for powder and that near-primitive energy that only these experiences can unleash.
For these reasons, the practice of freeride skiing, along with its philosophy and number of aficionados, are on the rise. Although it’s quite a technical discipline, the human aspect is very important considering the experience needed. Many areas in Trentino have, in recent years, begun to offer safer marked routes and even entire mountain slopes have been entirely dedicated to freeriding.
Maybe there’s no need but it’s best to underline the fact that off-piste skiing requires proper preparation, both in mind and body, and of course some solid ski-mountaineering experience. Make sure you have the proper equipment too (including avalanche transceivers, probes and shovel) and, above all, you should know the mountain like the back of your hand.
Luckily, throughout Trentino you can always rely on local Mountain Guides and Ski Instructors for all you might need, from some lessons to training or even to accompany you on a freeride excursion in complete safety.
