Saas Fee Riverbed Map

When heading back down the mountain from Morenia, and theres some fresh powder then you must drop in and give this little riverbed a try. As you follow the main red piste down from Morenia, Piste number 4a you'll turn left over a big bridge with large orange netting, after this bridge stop there and look to your right. Here you will see the river bed taking you back towards the village. Take a look at how much snow coverage there is, is theres enough then drop in and enjoy the fun ride back to the village. Theres no set route through so plenty of space to get a fresh line each in your group. The line should bring you back out at the bottom of the red heading into the village. Small but fun route for many levels.
