Description

When you are on the 8er Jet lift you can have a great look down to the face you'll be skiing. It's an easy route, but also has nice parts with some single rocks and bumps in it, so there is something for everybody. Exit the 8er Jet at the top to the left and follow the piste number 10. Go past the natural half pipe canyon which is a good tip for a fun run in the afternoon. After 250 metres the piste makes a slight turn to the right- this is your entry point, you can have a look down the whole slope here. It's a wide area so you can choose where you want to draw your line into the snow. Be aware of some small rocks, which could destroy your loved skis, especially when you are skiing here early season. After 400 metres there is a track appears, keep an eye on that, otherwise you may drop into the flats, which would be annoying. The nearer you come to the bottom, the bumpier the hill gets, it's very fun to jump from one slope onto the other. Afterwards you will end up at piste number 14, here you can go back to the 8er Jet again, or do some runs on the Pfaffenbühel T-bar. This route is a good suggestion for days with bad weather conditions or too high avalanche danger on the east facing slopes.
