A nice moderate open run down to Zurs-worth the traverse.

Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

From Muggengrat chairlift head follow run 10 around to where the slope becomes a steep face.

From here look into the direction of the Hasenfluh peak and maintain a high traverse around the shoulder of this peak.

Continue to traverse around this peak until the north east facing slope will come into view.

This is now a vast splendid slope which one can take down to the road, a chance to show off your turns to the town of Zurs. Beware for rocks and small drops at the bottom so keep right here.

The traverse can be difficult on a snowboard but it is possible and the reward can be deep dry powder on a north east facing slope.

However, the traverse is south facing so is prone to wet snow slides in late winter.
