Description

From the top station, Albonagrat, head towards the restaurant and continue along passing alongside to the left of the restaurant over the Maroijochle as though you were to head down the Geisleger slope. Keep left here then traverse onto a north west facing shoulder. This traverse is difficult on a snowboard, therefore snowshoes or a splitboard is recommended. This an official hiking path in summer, the route should become clear and the hut will come into view at a slightly lower elevation where the first section of the run commences over a gentle slope. Keeping left of the hut then proceed over amazing open terrain all the way to the treeline. Once at the treeline traverse left to join a steeper slope which then leads down to the valley where it connects with the Maroikopfe freeride route. Head towards a hut and the track through the trees to Langen railway station. The final section through the trees can become tracked and rutted as it is busy with ski guides.
