HochAlterBahn Map

As you are riding the HochAlterBahn chairlift you will see that the terrain below you has minimal features to worry about, and plenty of space for some fun. As with most lines around Kühtai, this route is merely a suggestion for where you can go in this area - feel free to follow your nose and sniff out anything that looks like it will make you smile.

Description

The best way to access this terrain is to initially go skier's right of the lift cables and then, shortly after starting out, passing left under the cables to the huge meadows of snow on the far side. Tear down these to reach a piste. Cross over this and continue down steeper terrain which is covered in shrubs and trees. Drift rightwards back into the lift and go again!
