Freeriding, skiing on open terrain, goes back to the origins of skiing, when there were no prepared pistes, just snowy mountains. It was a great challenge for skiers to find the perfect route down. Nowadays it’s trendy to ski off piste. Physical condition, ability and knowledge of the local conditions are important pre-requisites.
