Description

From the top of Gemsstock follow to the "Sonnenpiste" for 2 U-turns, then walk up in the direction of the last pylon of the cable-car for 3 minutes.

On your left side ski a few meters down the "Gipfelcouloir", then cross to your right (35 -40 degrees) until you get on the ridge.

The ridge is narrow, varied and with many cliffs on the right side, about 800 metres long but less than 30 degrees.

About 100 metres before a little pass which goes east to west, you can start to ski on the east slope.

Head to the next pylon just above the black run.

The off-piste stops with a 2-3 metre high wall down to the black run! Be careful not to create a snow slide or little avalanche onto the piste, which is very narrow there.
