FEO-Hintertux 2020


+++ We are very sad to announce that the FEO-Hintertux 20 could not be realized end of November due to the Corona lockdown regulations in Austria. All skilifts and skiressorts are closed the whole November. Additional most of all European countries has restrictive travel rules for this time period. After consultation with the Hintertux cable car company and the Tux tourist office, we came to the conclusion to switch the FEO-Hintertux into Spring 21. An exact date specification will come soon. Stay tunned and have a good time. Best regards and stay healthy.

FEO Hintertux 2020

The Freeheeler European Opening for Telemarker


From November 26th to 29th, the Hintertux Glacier will once again the ultimative Telemark paradise. The Freeheeler European Opening will take place for the tenth time.

We here at Freeheeler want to start out by saying a „Huge Thank You“ to all of you that listened to the guidelines laid out by the experts during the early stages of Covid-19. The infection scientists, the virologists, the brave and selfless doctors and nurses. And a huge Thank You to the everyday folk who continued to go to work, the shopkeepers, pharmacists, grocery store workers, etc.

 Because of this clear, logical, and necessary response from all of you, hopefully, we can get back to some semblance of normalcy going forward.

Which brings us to the 2020-21 FEO Hintertux Freeheeler European Opener at the „Best Place“ to kick-off Telemark Season, the Hintertux Glacier. We at Freeheeler are here for you. Whether you seek powder, love to rock the bumps, live for working freeheel tricks in the park, are all about fast freeriding and jumping rocks, precise technical racing, telemark ski mountaineering, just cruising the pistes, or skinning up with a picnic and two bottles of wine, we at Freeheeler embrace and celebrate with you, the coolest and most beautiful of skiing disciplines – Telemark! 

So, once again, the Freeheeler Welcome Team, as well as the Teams at Tux Finkenberg Tourism and the Hintertux glacier cable car company, are here with open arms, and bent knees, ready to telemark and rock ’n roll.

Telemarking originated about 150 years ago at Morgedal in Norway – to this day, the sport has lost none of its popularity. On the contrary. Proof of this is the Freeheeler European Opening in Hintertux, which brings together hundreds of telemarkers from home and abroad.
