Where it all started…
Home to most of the Snowmads and definitely one of our favourite places on this planet. Innsbruck has got it all, big mountains, good people and the vibe of a young energetic city. If you have never been there, it will blow your mind. If you have, we will blow it again.
What Awaits You
You’ll have the chance to explore the best freeride spots around Innsbruck together with a Snowmads athlete. In addition to that the group will be accompanied by a UIAGM mountain guide from the area, who will assist us for safety reasons on the mountain.
These weekend trips are meant to show you the best and most fun side of Innsbruck, on the mountains and in the city. You don’t have to be a pro yourself to enjoy our way of freeriding around Innsbruck, this trip is suitable for everybody who regularly skis offpist and feels comfortable touring on skis or splitboards.
On this long weekend we take on the role of the Local Snowmads and show you our “home mountains” as we know and love them.
More info about the detailed program further down
We meet up Wednesday evening in Innsbruck for dinner together in our accommodation for this trip, the brand new Montagu Bed & Beers (Höttingergasse 7, 6020 Innsbruck).
Hardly any other city allows you to reach interesting terrain and powder as easily as the freeride-city Innsbruck. Therefore, we will focus on the surrounding areas and take advantage of the public transport system that connects the city with the ski resorts.
Our guides and Snowmads know where to find the best conditions and decide depending on the weather and snow situation where the group will go.
Sunday is scheduled as a weather day without a planned program happening. If conditions were really bad on one of the days before, then we will use this day for another session instead. So if you can, plan your departure back home for the afternoon/evening, it’s no problem to stay in your room until later that day.

Skills And Fitness Required
- Our trips are masterminded by professional athletes, but you definitely don’t have to be one to join us on them. For us sport is above all a medium to connect people and realise dreams, whether it’s winter or summer. Some skills may be required depending on the adventure, but mostly our journeys are designed for anyone that’s motivated, fit and excited to broaden their horizons. This trip is for experienced off-piste skiers/boarders. You should be able to ski all kinds of terrain with confidence and a good technique. This trip also requires handling skills and basic knowledge of climbing skins, avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe. Experience in rappelling is not necessary. Physical fitness is mandatory for participating in our freeride trips. Our guides are of course eager to adjust the pace to the group as best they can, but hikes between 400 and 800 meters in altitude should not be a problem for you. Depending on snow, strength and motivation of the group hikes will take between 1-3 hours. Participants may be excluded from certain runs or hikes if they don’t meet the requirements and / or endanger themselves, the group or the mountain guides.
- Our trips are suitable for skiers and snowboarders (splitboard). For skiers we recommend skis with 90 to 115mm under foot. Best case would be with pin bindings and free-touring ski boots. We don’t exclude snowboarders, but please check the trip requirements and sign up only if you can fullfil them easily. Avalanche equipment (backpack, avalanche transceiver, shovel, probe) is mandatory. Helmet is recommended, but optional on this trip. We also suggest proper outer wear in order to adopt to changing weather conditions. Snow goggles, sunglasses, spare gloves, cap, possibly balaclava or mask. An airbag backpack is recommended, but not mandatory. If you need any rentals, let us know
