Freeriding, terrain parks and pistes
in Savognin


Freeriders of an advanced level are going to be disappointed if its testing stuff you crave for, there is none really. You can have a bit of excitement on the black run known as the Pro Spinatsch, running down from the Tiggignas chair lift, it is also the location of Savognin's fun park. It doesn't take too long to conquer if you know what you're doing on your edges.


Freestylers will find the best air to be had is either off the nicely shaped walls in the half-pipe or in the fun park which is tooled up with fun boxes, gaps, spines, rails and a quarter pipe. For some natural hits there are a few cliff drops and some air to be had on the area called Tiem.


Carvers have some particularly well groomed runs for arcing over on in full view of the lifts, allowing those clad in Oxbow gear to show off their latest designer jumpers and sad flower patterned yellow pants. A good piste to suit all levels whether you're in soft or hard boots, is the Cresta Ota, which runs down from the Piz Cartas summit and makes for a good time.


Beginners are looked after with a number of easy blues and the option of being able to slide back to base at the end of the day on easy to handle runs. However, uplift is mainly via drag lifts.  READ NEXT: Village life, accommodation & nightlife
