This very popular area is not too difficult and perfect for powder days or during snowfall. All the routes are visible from the chairlift making it an awesome playground for practising to spot your line and improve your jumps over rocks laden with snow.

Description

The first section is directly below the chairlift until you reach a narrow passage by a pylon where you must return to the piste. After a few meters on the piste you can go back out to the forest on the right and ski straight down to the Seehorn chairlift, choosing the best route under the lift line.

Difficulty

Difficult

Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.
