Description

This easy terrain is great for practicing your off-piste technique but is not to be underestimated in terms of avalanche danger. It is particularly risky after strong winds from the east. The descent runs parallel to the gondola so it is easy to check the conditions.

At the first turn of the Salati piste, go off-piste on the right side and follow the little valley bending to the left where the slopes become a bit steeper. Keep to the left side of the valley to reach the Endre plain. Stay on the left side of the dam and follow the Diretta Indren itinerary to the middle station, Gabiet.
