Description

This little off-piste route is a wonderful way to feel like you are away from the crowds and the piste without having to hike or head far into the backcountry. When you get off the Alpe Ostafa chair lift on the left hand side, begin to head down the Sarezza Contenery C6 run. When you see the shadow cast by the rock face turn sharply left. Continue under the rocks and stay as high as you can maintaining your speed. Then after around 50 to 70m you can enjoy the descent. Head straight down and aim for the cat tracks which will be around 100m below you, towards the Lago-Ciacero Belvedere chairlift. There is the option to jump over some of the rocks on the right and dodge through the little trees. It is a fun and playful run and good practice for traversing and picking your line, as there are a few different options. You may have to walk on the cat track for a short while to get back to the Lago-Ciacero chairlift.
