The "Grey Slope" doesn't look very difficult, but you don't want to get it wrong either. After getting off to the right on the top of the Oberjoch lift, you will see a wide slope. If there is enough snow, you don't need to be worried about any rocks. This fairly long line is for experienced freeriders, because slides can arise if you don't pay attention, due to the size of the slope. Once you get to the bottom, you'll be at the top of the Schilt lift.
