A classic off-piste route in Zermatt. Powder dreams after fresh snow, or an excellent bump run


Analysing terrain data









The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.


On exiting the Triftji T-bar or Rote Nase cable car, this run is the main face, opposite the Sunnegga/Rothorn mountain.

The convex slope is steep at the top, meaning amazing fresh powder turns if the snow allows.

This is followed by an open, rolling section, with a couple of small cliffs/rocks half way down to jump off or avoind, depending on your preference.

It is a very open mountain section which allows you to choose a variety of lines, all taking you down towards the Stockhorn button lift.
