Synopsis: The Arlberg is a hot spot for off-piste and off-piste skiers & Riders
Freeriding has a long history on the Arlberg and the terrain is the source for many world class athletes.
We spend a winter with Lorraine Huber, Nadine Wallner, Stefan Häusl, Dino Flatz, Sebastian Mall and Mikaela Holsten in their home and dive into the riders’ perspective.
Sport has always been the linchpin of the culture and development of the ski town.
What does that mean for the locals at Arlberg and what drives them?
The Arlberg Effect is not only picturesque, but above all an authentic impression of the freeride community on the Arlberg.
The film is produced by snowboarder and filmmaker Timm Schröder and experienced backcountry ski photographers/filmmakers Daniel Bear and Alex Fuchs during the 21-22 season.
The film title “Arlberg Effect” is an expression in freeride jargon and means that the avalanche warning level can generally be assessed as half a level lower in the frequently used areas near the slopes. The Arlberg Region is the origin to this affect’s name due to the heavy traffic of Freeriders in it’s terrain, traffic that actively change the conditions of the mountain. Of course, the avalanche warning level must always be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Timm Schröeder is a Snowboarder and Filmmaker , and combines his Professional Riding Career with Filmmaking.
