Description

This whole run goes along skiers right of Mitterhausabfahrt. Please be aware of the fact that the mountain above you, Krahbergzinken, sometimes releases avalanches on the upper stretch, which also go into the forest. So general conditions need to be safe and you should avoid traversing in right underneath the couloirs. In this run you'll also find a commonly used spot for backcountry kickers right at the beginning. If you are just doing you first turns in deeper powder, go with a friend only and always stay together - you are not visible from the pistes here. If you are not feeling comfortable stay in sight of the piste. You can even find some boulders there to try your first little drops, but you have to be fast after a snowfall, this run is very well ridden and sooner or later the whole forest will be moguls.
