Since the 1960s, Heiligenblut has been a paradise for skiing aficionados and winter sports enthusiasts.

The freeride arena and its sectors.

The freeride arena is unsecured, free ski room and is divided into sectors A to F.


The Schareck is the central mountain of the ski area and can be accessed from almost all sides.


This sector is very snow reliable due to its height and exposure. The finest powder can still be found here in March.


Due to its height, this sector is very snow-sure and, if the avalanche situation allows it, it can be used throughout the winter.


This sector is very diverse. While steep, alpine terrain predominates in the upper area, wide, gentle areas can be found below.


This is challenging terrain. Downhill runs in this sector require a lot of experience and good orientation.
