While huge parts of Austria are covered in deep snow and most of the riders are preparing their skis for the winter season, one can still find nearly perfect riding conditions to the east. Peter Pingitzer teamed up with local rider Peter Mihalkovits in early December to spend a day on his favourite trails in Hungary, very close to the Austrian border.

Some of year's best riding happens here during the winter months

Being able to ride all year long in almost dry conditions is certainly a huge advantage of living in that area. A good riding community and a solid range of trails makes things even better – because nothing beats some chilled trail rides at home.

Perfectly built local tracks make the off-season more enjoyable

bigquotesWinter isn't too bad here. Trails are in perfect shape and you can always find some motivated friends to ride with. Usually, in late September, towards the end of the racing season, I really start looking forward to those winter rides at homePeter Mihalkovits

Major downside of winter: It gets dark way too early

 Maybe they aren't complicated enough or something?...or else quite difficult perhaps??? One of the smoothest, slick looking tricks in my books. Wish we could see them more often.

 Yeah I don't do any tricks but now I want to learn how to do that.

 During the intro in the shop I thought that it's going to be lame and there wouldn't be enough time (2+ min) to squeeze in any proper riding. I was wrong.

 The trail is so smoothed out. No rocks or anything.
  • + 2
 I think the 15 foot drop makes up for that.

 There are places in the world where you really don't run into a lot of rocks in the soil. It's just what the ground is like.
