We invite you all for the FEO Hintertux 2021
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.
Which brings us to the 2021 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.
