Starting from the middle station at the Wiesenalm, the new ski run is 2.2 km long and, with a gradient of around 50 %, it offers quite a challenge (black piste). A special treat for all serious winter sport enthusiasts – in future you can ski from the “Übergangsjoch” at 2,500 metres above sea level non-stop all the way down into the valley to Zell/Rohrberg at an altitude of 580 metres, covering a mind-boggling distance of 10 kilometres and an elevation drop of no fewer than 1,930 m. Fans of the “Sportabfahrt” downhill run will likewise enjoy the extended distance all the way down to the valley.
