For snowboard and freeski, the smorgasbord of rails, jumps and halfpipes covers nearly five miles of terrain at Carinthia. Riders and skiers can choose from approximately 125 freeski features scattered around 12 full terrain parks which include a tree-skiing area, a superpipe with 18-foot walls, a mini-pipe with 8-foot walls, an all-natural park without manmade material, and a big-air site.

Alpine skiers at MSA train for competition in Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Super G. Unlike the situation at many ski academies, MSA athletes are not limited to a particular trail or type of terrain for training. We have access to a variety of trails, which allows us to customize our daily training according to the competition schedule and weather conditions. The Peak Resorts at Mount Snow supports high-level Alpine competitions.
