Description

From top of Muggengrat chairlift follow run10 until you reach the steep open northeast facing section. From here leave the run by heading sharply right and start the traverse along towards the Flexenspitze. From here a sidestep or hike will be required, this is difficult to access on a snowboard, therefore snowshoes or splitboard is recommended. A hike up is required to reach the face below the Erzbergspitze and from there a traverse across towards the the Rosskopf saddle which is the key part of this run. Once over this saddle the slope comes into view and it is nice moderate terrain to a meadow. From there bear left and head down towards the road and the start of the Flexen tunnel over exciting and variable terrain. There is a bus stop at the bottom here and a bus which will take you to Zurs, Lech or St Anton. A superb run which is worth the hike.
