My wild side of Kaunertal: Freeriding on the Kaunertal Glacier


Freedom and a thirst for adventure—who knows this feeling? A wonderful winter day, bright sunshine. You’re one of the first to stand on the ridge or on the top of a snow-covered mountain. You have the vision and the overview. You feel the perfect consistency of the snow and plunge down into adventure, into an untouched powder slope. Your heart starts beating faster and you can feel the real powder.
