Geisleger Map

From the top of the Albonagrat chairlift head towards the restaurant. It is possible to drop into the north face of Geisleger slope at the restaurant, however, by walking past the restaurant and along the ridge line and dropping into the slope where it tends to a westerly aspect the chance of finding fresh powder is much greater, the terrain here is also more varied with a large choice of lines which can be taken. The first section on both the north and west face are moderately steep, then the terrain levels out and many different lines are available, however, as the treeline approaches either traverse right (eastwards) towards the pylon next to the trees and onto the S2 home run, or alternatively head northwards towards a second pylon and follow this face next to a gulley to the valley floor and the bottom lift station in Stuben. If not affected by wind this run can hold great powder with what appears to have endless lines and a chance to get some great turns in. The last section to the valley floor can be difficult once tracked as it gets many bumps.
