Hoadl Ost Map

From the Hoadlhaus restaurant (2340 metres), drop into the large, wide face to the east which looks down on the Dohlennest bar and the recently built artificial lake which feeds the Axamer Lizum snow cannons. The face is split by a prominent rock buttress which cannot be crossed once you are in the face - either choose to ski left or right of it when you drop in. The option on the right in shorter (300 metres) and drops you onto the Abfarht Damen piste close to the Dohlennest. The left hand option is much longer (400 metres) and slightly narrower but still drops out onto the Damen Abfahrt.
