Description

This freeride line can be accessed directly after the Kettingbahn or the Kappellenbahn lift and is easy to spot, as it is officially marked. X2 is parallel to the Kettingbahn and has some steeper terrain. Be wary of tree stumps and fences though. All in all, a fairly safe line close to slopes and good for intermediates, this line can become fairly worn out by the end of the day, as it is frequented a lot when it has fresh powder. A good orientation when descending is the Eder Hut or the beginning of the Kettingbahn. Stay in this direction and you will be quickly back up on the mountain should you want to ride it again.
