Where passion meets female empowerment

3 days - 8 women - one passion! Skiing has been an integral part of my life since I was a child. From pizza to chips, from magic carpet to chairlift, from piste to off-piste. Even though I love "piste skiing" and speed, freeriding has become another passion of mine in recent years. Exploring the backcountry, away from the hustle and bustle, becoming one with nature - there is hardly anything that lets you be so in the moment. Present. Fulfilled. Grounded. 

While I spend most of my time off-piste with my brother and his friends, in January 2024 I was able to spend some incredible freeride days with 7 inspiring women at the "Home of Lässig". And what can I say? It couldn't have been better! The dynamic, a very special one. Difficult to put into words. But characterized by consideration, appreciation and extremely empowering. We all felt super comfortable right from the start and with every swing and every descent, we grew even closer together in a very short space of time. 
It is precisely these feelings of familiarity and safety that are so important, especially away from the slopes, and are a fundamental part of a successful freeride day. With Sabine Schipflinger in our Girlboss crew, we were lucky enough to be able to get the absolute best out of the less than ideal snow conditions. A local guide always knows where to find white gold ;-) On top of that, thanks to a professional like her, we had the opportunity to refresh our knowledge of off-piste safety at a safety training course. Important and valuable! 

After two really cool days in the backcountry, it was off to the slopes on day 3 for some early-bird skiing in the finest Kaiser weather. Freshly groomed. Good grip. Ready to shred. Simply glorious! With glorious sunshine and a panorama stretching as far as the Grossglockner, our hearts were beaming. And although we really stepped on the gas, everything was super relaxed, without stress, everyone was happy. 

What also made our time so special and connected us even more was the tobogganing (an absolute highlight and really fun), eating together in huts and restaurants with enriching conversations, lots of fun and, last but not least, a mindful body session on the mat to feel even deeper into the body. 
All in all, we had perfect days in Saalbach Hinterglemm and left with wonderful memories and new friendships.

So here's an appeal: grab your skis and friends and spend a few days in the "Home of Lässig"! Maybe you'll even meet up, because we'll definitely be repeating the Ladies Freeride Session.
