Jumps up to 80m, steep slopes up to 85% gradient, speeds up to 140 km/hr, 860 meters height difference from the starting gate (1665m) to the finish (805m). A total length of 3312 metres at more than average speed of 103 km / h.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland!

The “Wilder Kaiser” region in Tyrol offers 113 kilometres of winter walking paths! Walk along glistening fields of snow through some of the Tyrol’s most beautiful countryside. For example up to the Wochenbrunneralm at 1,080 metres. The reward is a refreshing break with a stunning view down into the valley.

A winter hike region is the perfect way to recharge the batteries in the crisp winter air.
