Description

From Höhenweg traverse to the far left. You should be able to see some avalanche fences installed on the west face of the mountain. Always keep these on the left side and just ride down till the forest line where you have a creek forest option on your right and and open wide slope just below the avalanche fences line. From there you should be able to see the first houses in Davos. Depending on how much snow there is you can ride down the road or you will have to walk down it. This is a great run when there is good snow at lower altitudes or after big snowfalls.
