Terrain beyond the resort boundaries without marked trails and natural obstacles such as trees and cliffs. It can also be a geographical area that is remote, undeveloped, isolated, or difficult to access.
Riding on such a terrain can be very dangerous due to the fact that they are often not suitable for riding and you may encounter many dangers, such as stones or tree branches, which cannot be seen under the snow.
You should also take into account the avalanche danger and be properly prepared in case of snow avalanche, e.g. use specialist avalanche airbags and transmitters, which in case of burial in the snow will allow the rescue team to quickly find you.
