With so many incredible ski areas, figuring out where to ride in Tirol can be trickier than the skiing itself. This guidebook levels the scales by giving you 10 suggested freeride lines - all of which are tough challenges - in 10 different Tirolian resorts. Working your way gradually eastwards you'll start in the huge Ischgl area and then move out to the Zugspitze (on the German border) and then continue to the famous freeride zones above Innsbruck and finish your trip in the mountain mecca that is the Zillertal.

With just one line to tick off per day you'll have plenty of time to explore the other routes in each area. The crux of the trip will be getting the right conditions on the right days but if you pull it off then you'll have experienced the finest ski roadtrip in the Eastern Alps.
