Pragelato, the area at the edge of the Via Lattea in Italy, becomes a freeride area. At least, the area calls itself not a ski area anymore, but a mountain (Natural Terrain) where you can do all sorts of activities and freeriding is called very explicitly. The area is accessible by two lifts.
Best slogan ever
Pragelato has the best slogan ever being 'montagna da vivere in libertà. Which means something like 'the freedom to live on the mountain'. And let that be the reason for many of us why we ever started freeriding. The prices of the lift passes are awesome as well, with thirteen (yes, 13 euros) per day!
Initiator of the project is Carlalberto Cimento, freerider and tourskier. The two lifts open up an area completely in the spirit of freeriding and tour skiing. We wonder how this will work out. Will they attract enough visitors? And will you pay Pragelato a visit this winter?
