Gotschnagrat NE face Map

From the top of Gotschnabahn 2285m turn left and follow the slope there is a tower station not far away on the left side- approach there. From there you can drop into your left. Its a very wide steep slope with rocky areas and some vegetation running all the way down and below until the Gotschnabahn middle station. Its a very exposed area specially with challenging snow conditions so play safe on this area. There is another entry area on the right side of the Gotschnabahn however the left side of the slope (being the top as a reference) is very rocky with some cliffs, there is a way down but only really experienced skiers should drop in this area. Once at Gotschnabahn middle station you can connect to Route nº48 riding down until Klosters
