Take the 8-er Jet up. It does get crowded, but due to solid capacity the wait is generally not too bad. From here ride down to Waidoffen 6-pack lift. If you get out looker's right, around the restaurant, you have a short off-piste patch with a few kickers. If you want to push it, take the lift up and leave looker's left.


Stay as high as possible traversing under an avalanche barricade, under the peak of Pfaffenbichl. The standard and most obvious access is essentially traversing over with a short side-step. This one is described here: https://fatmap.com/routeid/2769199/superbowl

For this route take a further entrances to the bowl higher up if you are happy to hike/climb a bit more. Get out out of the six-pack and hike straight around the peak. Get over to the right and stay as high as possible below the rocks and hike up into the second couloir on lookers left. Once you reach the ridge stay right to enter the couloir. This one is stunning but should only be skied in stable conditions. Crampons are usually necessary for the ascent.

You end up in the same bowl which traverses out to Hochfuegen after passing a few houses and eventually riding down the sled track. Sometimes you have to pass avalanche debris, especially in spring with the sun causing wet snow triggers. You reach a few isolated houses, follow the road for a few meters before dropping off to the right following the sled track. It's fine to go bananas as long as you stay in control, there is often families! It spits you out at the base station of the 8er jet.



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
