Krippenstein Overview

The Krippenstein is the venue for the Red Bull White Rush and the locally revived Sekundenjagd, both Off-Piste races with minimal rules, not for the faint hearted.

It has also has had an exceptional snow record in recent years from Xmas through to April, which along with its relaxed and uncrowded skiing means it is well worth a visit, as the late Warren Miller found in his film Off the Grid.
