Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in Tux


Freeriders have the pick of the slopes with various terrain on and off-piste. There are huge open expanses and loads of gullies and natural walls to ride. There's no tree riding as the altitude deters their growth, but it's no big loss as the terrain is more than sufficient, especially if you take a look at what's available to ride off Number 3 chair.


Freestylers have loads of hits to check out, which include a few cliff drops and a number of wide, natural gap jumps. If you're still not content, there's a fun-park and two halfpipes which they maintain all year round, although it's not always possible in July and August.


Carvers can feel as much at home here as anyone else. The pistes are really good for laying out big turns, and tend to be long with a few sharp turns here and there.


Beginners may find Hintertux a bit too daunting, especially if you're a total novice. There are some easy runs, but in truth you may be better off at another resort.  READ NEXT: Village life, accommodation & nightlife
