“Ride Along” that is our Freeride traverse from Oberstdorf to Lenzerheide. On this unforgetable traverse we cover a lot of ground and will get to know the best runs of the Freeride-spots on the way. Thanks to a well planned route and the usage of cable cars we will go down much more than up. If you are up to get to know a lot of different places in just 1 week and are keen to skin up 500 height meters per day, we are sure our “Ride Along” will be an incredible experience for you.
