Mountain Biking Highlight
Freeride tour with three challenging singletrack descents. Mostly here S1 is required, the most difficult places are at S2. Some steep trail sections are included.
If the plan goes up, this tour, barely published, will be outdated again. After various alterations, this plan envisages that the cable car on the Gaislachkogel will also transport mountain bikers to the summit station. The four freeride trails described here will then be joined by a fourth departure. With then 1700 meters net height loss.In the years 2008/2009 they have already been. At that time, the Gaislachkogel Trail was one of the freeride figureheads of the Ötztal. However, due to some geological problems, extensive conversion work was necessary at the mountain station, and the trail was not passable for several years. But as I said: in the summer of 2014 this should be a thing of the past.Meanwhile, the three trails described here provide a lot of freeride fun. Flowing passages alternate with challenging spots here. Every now and then you are confronted with steps and roots. Sometimes the trails are also pretty straight, so you'll get pretty stuck on the brakes in the steep passages.Ambitious freeriders with neat suspension on the fork will not bother. However, a good driving technique should have who wants to have fun on these trails. Among the beginner-friendly trails of the Ötztal, the Freeride Lines at the Gaislachkogel tend not to count.Share this tour
