Seems intimidating because you can see it's steep as you approach the edge of the mountain. This run is difficult so I recommend going with friends the first time regardless of your skills. However, if you feel like you have good skills then maybe you can go solo afterwards. Take the Hovde Express and ski skiers right and ski between the restaurant and the lift. You will approach an avalanche warning sign and there is where the run begins. Make sure you start skiing back to the slopes before reaching the trees. It will start to flat out a little bit right before the trees.



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

Medium Exposure (E2)

As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.
