Description

At the end of the Schiltgrat ridge, the line of the old T bar presents a very challenging option due to its narrow width, almost requiring jump turns. When there has been heavy snow this widens and you can pick lines through the bushes. You then cross over the Finel piste and follow the line of the chairlift, with a route between trees and large boulders allowing for jumps and drop offs albeit at not a very steep gradient. It then opens out to allow for some longer turns and some good undulating terrain along the side of the Finel piste. You can then cross the Finel piste again to access some more powder before making it down to the terrain park and rejoining the piste. This is a fun run with significantly varying terrain and a good introduction to some off piste skiing.
