Where the Hohtalli and Gifthilli pistes meet, exit to the right. Follow the open rolling pitches and then steer a little further to the right to avoid landing on top of the gallery. Where the train passes below, stay to the right of this, and continue following the face down. Either turn left at the bottom and join the Riffelalp or Riffelboden pistes.
