Expert skiers will enjoy the northern descent from the Pardatschgrat ridge. When you reach the mid-way station of the cable car change onto piste 1a and let it rip! A real highlight for those who enjoy challenging slopes.

The sunny pistes leading down from the top of the Flimjochbahn cable car towards Alp Trida (Switzerland) are ideal for families with children. Pistes 62 and 63 are gentle and ideal even for young skiers starting out.
