Pitztal Wild Face Extreme Freeride

St. Leonhard im Pitztal, 16.04.2021 - 18.04.2021

Weakness is not what either spectators want to see nor the competitors want to show when racing the Pitztal Wild Face Extreme Freeride, dropping more than 1,500 meters through ungroomed terrain.

In April 2021, 3,162-meter Mittagskogel Peak at Pitztal Glacier plays host to the “Pitztal Wild Face Extreme” Freeride Race. The event is open to all freeriders who dare to take the challenge of speeding down 4.6 kilometers of ungroomed backcountry terrain, dropping 1,510 meters. Now in its 12th year, the Pitztal Wild Face Extreme is a 2* Qualifier event on the Freeride World Qualifier Series.

The competition format is extraordinary in the freeride contest world. Normally riders on skis going through Alpine terrain try to collect points from the judges for their style, their fluency and their tricks. This time it’s only speed that counts. The course is inspected on Friday and at the qualification runs on Saturday, skiers compete for their chance at glory. The fastest riders are advancing to the grand Wild Face finals.
