Gefrorene Wand Map

This route is not that spectacular, but on bad days on top of the glacier, this is the best spot you can find. When you get to the top with the Gletscherbus 3 you will see the race pistes in front of you. Go straight to them and you will notice some metal gates leading to the side, limiting the race pistes. Go through the gap of the barriers and you will enter a nice hill behind. You can have a descent of 500 metres here, at the second half, there the hill is getting a bit tighter, because of some rocks on the right hand, but just follow the hill/channel here and you won't get in any troubles. At the end you will come back to the slope you left on the beginning and here you can head to the Gefrorene Wand T-Bar and head for the next run.
