This great black run, like a long skier cross is not for the faint hearted but excellent fun, especially in the mornings, as most people head up further to Trockener Steg.


Analysing terrain data








The jewel in the crown of the Matterhorn Paradise ski area, this black run starts at the bottom of the Furgg-Sandiger Boden chairlift and after a couple of turns on the relative flat, drops away immediately to the left on a wide steep pitch, this then funnels into a short path which winds around to the right, before dropping away to the left briefly, before another right hander.

This track then opens out and steepens into a small gully which then funnels down again onto a longer left hand corrner dropping away before rising up onto a ridge.

The slope then drops away more steeply for a couple of turns before a sharp right hander, (make sure your edges are sharp to avoid slipping off the piste straight down the valley here!) After a short track to get your breath back, you hit another small ridge, before a short steep section, a left hand turn, and then a great steep pitch, (it can get icy on the left here) before it funnels quickly into another left hand turn.

Finally there is one more sharp right hander onto a steep narrow pitch which then opens out a little, over a couple of blind rollers before the rollercoaster eventually comes to a halt just above the Furi bubble station.

At the end, there is a rolling right hand turn to the lift station, grins all around!
