SE Höhenweg area Map

From slope nº4 at Parsenn (one below Parsenn Rapid) turn right and start a long traverse where slope nº5 starts or the BMW slalom. The traverse will keep you on the right side of the creek through rolling terrain, where you should be really aware of stopping zones, until you can ride down through a wide couloir on your left which will lead you to the big creek (an artificial lake will be visible on your right, higher up) and will finish where the black ski out nº7 just cross the cable railway. It's good off piste in winter conditions and good snow depth at lower altitudes, ridable for all kind of levels. Although it looks a safe area, take care because you will be always underneath really steep areas from the peaks, and there is a real danger of avalanches coming from above. Have fun but be safe.
