Description

Without too much effort, a relatively avalanche safe southerly slope can be enjoyed down to the main road. On the slopes, there can be barbed wire fences. Only in extreme conditions is there a danger of avalanches. In any case, check the current avalanche report. This line is also good for beginners. Also check the bus timetable before departure. Follow piste no. 57 which is not always prepared. Near the Hartlalm hut (1500m) leave the slope to the left and exit through beautiful meadows between larger groups of trees. At about 1200m, you pass a hut and a slope will open to the right. At about 1050m, head to the right on a forest road through a small ditch and then a flat area whilst keeping left. Behind it, go down the last 50m to the main road. On the walkway to the left it's about another 300m from the bus station.
