Rinne 5 Map

From the Hoadlhaus restaurant (2340 metres), ski south down the Olympia Abfahrt Damen piste for 1 minute to reach the HoadlSattel col (2264 metres), where the piste bends sharply to the left. At the Hoadlsattel, either hike or pole/sidestep along the snowy ridge that is straight ahead for 2 minutes to reach the top of the line. The line is open for most of its 150 metres length but there is a narrowing in the middle. Other than that it is a fun but relatively stress-free line which never exceeds 35 degrees and leads easily back onto the Olympia Abfahrt Damen piste.
