Freeride Winterjackets – Downhill

Alpine Proof Lab: Downhill Freeride Winterjackets

Part 1: This is how a testing day in Alpine Proof Outdoor Lab starts.

When all data is collected, winterjackets are examined carefully, and sensors and cameras are working properly, the second part of a day testing winterjackets starts. We put on our freeride skis and winterjackets. By freeride winterjackets testing we have some great advantages: a) a lot of fun at downhill skiing, b) great insight data into the functionality of jackets, and c) even more fun when snow conditions are great.

Conditions were not the this day, but the level of difficulty was really high: From Mount Schönjoch via the southern flank of Schadenstock at -13 degrees downhill. At these freezing temperatures you can find out whether a winterjacket is windproof or not, because at this steep face one reaches a high pace.

Arriving at the valley station we look back towards the Alpine Proof Outdoor Lab on 2436 meters. This is the route we’ve taken. Everything was superb!
