X4 Map

This freeride route heads towards the valley of Saalbach-Hinterglemm with its final stop just after Viehhofen. The newly built Zell am See Express grants freeriders a great new spot for enjoying the pow. The X4 is situated fairly low so check the snow and weather forecast first, as there might not be enough snow in the lower parts. There is also no lift from the bottom, only a bus stop, which can bring you back to Zell am See, but not straight back up the slopes. There are tree stumps and trickier terrain towards the bottom. Not recommended for beginners.
