Lawinnenhang Map

Get off at the top of the Birgitzköpfl chairlift, ski east into the bowl immediately in front of you. Traverse across the initial section of this and over a small ridge then ski the fall line through some beautiful, mellow powder which is nicely broken up by small bushes and trees.

Description

Once the small rocky peak of the Zwölferspitze is to your right, traverse towards it and pass just underneath it to reach a lovely mellow gully full of small trees. Ski this and join the Götzens Linkup line.
