Taking skiing to the extreme

Active Lifestyle

Experience a wild skiing adventure: powered by Amway!

Beware the wild face of Pitztal alpine valley, Austria! Any skier who shows a weakness will be punished on this long finishing straight.

The Pitztal Wild Face: powered by Amway, the downhill freeride ski event will again pose a challenge to the world’s most dynamic freeriders on Friday 28 February and Saturday 1 March 2014. Here, they will fight for ranking points in the Austrian Freeride World Qualifier. Amway will be there live as the title sponsor, armed with oversized XSTM Power Drink start- and finish-line markers, banners and the XS Power Drink stand.

Power for skiers – and spectators

Amway will provide powerful support for competitors: the XS Power Drink* in the giveaway bags at this glacier-based event will give skiers an energetic boost at an altitude of 1,510 metres.

Fans in the audience will also have enough power to cheer on every competitor from start to finish, as the Amway Active Tour Team will inspire a high-energy mood and provide free samples of XS Power for all. Spectators can keep their eyes on a giant screen at the finish line so as not to miss a single overtaking manoeuvre on the 4.6-kilometre-long run. As an added fun bonus, there will be live contests for spectators, featuring exciting prizes for lucky winners.

Tough routes, professional freeriders

Skiers and spectators will experience two exciting days of live racing. On Friday, all skiers and snowboarders can compete in the first challenging ski run. Professionals and amateurs have an equal chance of qualifying to compete in the final.

On Saturday, those who qualify for the final must trek – with gear in tow – to the summit starting line on Mount Kepa/Mittagskogel, the third highest peak in the Western Karawanks range. Five gates indicate the path of the run, and in between skiers will freeride across open terrain. From the first minute, spectators can share in thrilling overtaking manoeuvres and the exciting, high-speed tempo of the battle to be the best on this challenging ski run – a tempo which competitors must keep up with if they’re to better the awe-inspiring six-minute finishing time of the 2013 winner.
