On leaving the Stockhorn button lift, follow the button lift line back down. You will have a long open section which is steeper at the top with some pretty large bumps, but always with a pretty good base as you start, which then flattens out gently about half way down. This allows you to open up the turns a little. Keeping to the left gives you a little fresher snow, as the slope cambers to the right, and eventually joins the Triftji main run, giving you the option of taking the button lift up again, or continuing down Triftji itself.
