The Exoskelett: expend less energy and gain more stability

Againer skiing system

Performance booster for your leg muscles

With the Againer Exoskelett attached to your legs, you not only support your lower leg and thigh muscles but also your knees and your back. It makes your movements more powerful and also takes some of the strain off these body parts, not only when you're crouching down. The Againer skiing system also gives you more power and stability in tight curves and during fast turns. Patscheider now offers you the chance to try out this revolutionary skiing concept for yourself. Directly at our take-off centre next to the Komperdell cable car line halfway station.

The board that's right for you directly on site

Burton test ride

At our Burton test ride centre, you can try out the latest and newest Burton snowboarding products. Leave your own snowboard at home and try a range of different boards – to match the snow conditions. As an official Burton method centre, we provide Burton's LTR (learn to ride) course for all newcomers to snowboard heaven. Burton's LTR course, developed in cooperation with leading snowboard training providers, allows beginners to progress as quickly as possible and ensures that they can already snowboard a whole short run on their first day on the slopes. You'll therefore enjoy the amazing feeling snowboarding gives you right from the start.
