The sunny sledge slope runs under the modern Telemix lift. Among the classic chairs that transport skiers, the ski lift also has gondolas, to comfortably bring sled fans back to the starting point.

Author’s recommendation

After a few warm-up descents on the Absam slope you will be ready to whiz on the long "Obereggen" slope, which starts from the Epircher Laner mountain hut.
