Inspiring other athletes in the komoot community with your highlights, photos and tips is what the Pioneer program is all about. Your reward is the recognition of others, but that’s not all Komoot regularly organizes unforgettable "Pioneer Trips" in cooperation with different tourist areas to say "thank you" to particularly hard-working pioneers. In this Collection, you will get to know the four diligent Pioneers Beat, Daniela, Sandra and Sven, who spent a long weekend together on the panoramic and action-packed trails around Ischgl.

Exploring the varied trails of the Paznaun is a great "thank you" for the many beautiful photos and helpful tips that the four Pioneers regularly post on their komoot profiles. At the same time, this weekend trip also provided the backdrop for other great highlights. The four stunning photos we show you in this Collection were taken during their adventure.

    In the front Paznauntal is the cozy community Kappl, nestled amid alpine pastures, the Alps and the mighty mountains of the Verwall and Samnaungruppe a nice starting point for this tour. With the help of the Dias gondola lift, you can check out the trails northeast of Ischgl today and we can promise you one thing: Here you can expect 100% mountain bike fun!Main protagonist of this tour is the brand new Dias Trail, which was opened in the summer of 2018. It starts in the Sunny Mountain adventure park, which you can reach directly with the Dias cable car. At 1,812 meters, it starts. About flowy trails you drive through initially dense forest, which opens in the lower part of it, until you roll over open meadows through Egg and continue to the center of Kappl. The Dias Trail is truly a picture-perfect single trail, with no artificial stops and jumps. If you love nature trails, he is an absolute insider tip.And best of all, thanks to the cable car, you can drive it as often as you want or just until you can not. And it's even better, because you're spoiled for choice. If you do not turn left at the branch to the Dias Trail, but you get to the right, you will reach another great trail, which leads you fast and over quite technical passages also back to Kappl. In the end, however, the same question awaits you: Do you have enough or will you take the gondola up again? Actually, the answer is clear, right?
