The life of Tao

An Epic Arlberg Day with Tao Kreibich

By: Ethan Stone January 08, 2024

A massive dump of snow in mid-December kicked the 2023/24 winter in the Alps into high gear. Freerider Tao Kreibich was ready to make the most of the primetime conditions with a visit to St. Anton am Arlberg, one of Austria’s most well-known powder-skiing spots. Tao and his crew of Max Hitzig and Timmy Schröder headed out for what turned out to be an all-time day in some of St. Anton’s steepest terrain.

Tao and friends’ rowdy day at the Arlberg is documented in episode 4 of his ongoing YouTube series “The Life of Tao.” He’s been crushing it lately in the YouTube game, bagging tens of thousands of views on his episodes as his freeride exploits take his across Austria and on farther-flung adventures to locations like Georgia and Lebanon. If you’re into fun freeride adventures, Tao is definitely an athlete to follow!
