Description

From the top of the Beilspitz Lift, the only T-Bar in this area, go straight over the ridge in a NW direction. You have a breathtaking view down the hill now, which is shady until late afternoon. When you drop into the wide slope you will notice a road crossing in about 200 m and some trees in 350 m, which you should pass on the right side. From there the hill steepens slightly, but you have enough space for some long joyful turns. You can go straight down into the valley with a descent of 500m here. If you want to do a tree run, maybe when the vis isn't that good, than you can stay further right for better orientation. At the bottom of the valley you will notice a road leading into the woods, follow it until you reach a crossing and take the next road on the left until you reach the red slope number 77 to the Eggalm Nord chairlift. This route is most best in January or February, when you have a fresh powder in the valley. If you love big turns this is your hill in Mayrhofen!
