Description

This freeride line heads down the mountain for a bit, away from the slopes and is a hidden gem. It is a bit lesser known, because it is in an area of the resort which does not get frequented as much as the others. Once you are on the freeride line, be sure to keep the slopes in your sight, as you need to get back to 17 & 18, just next to the drag lifts. The reward for a successful ride is the Schmiedhofalm, which is a hut between the afore-mentioned slopes.
