This delightfully long downhill run in the Saas-Grund area is set against a backdrop of high-Alpine scenery. Starting at the Hohsaas cableway top station, it first crosses spacious slopes before taking you down to the village in the valley.
The Saas-Grund ski area is nestled into the flanks of the two four-thousand-metre Weissmies and Lagginhorn peaks and reaches an altitude of 3,200m. Hence high-Alpine fun and a strong certainty of snow are guaranteed. This moderately difficult run from the highest point at Hohsaas to Saas-Grund provides glorious, extended pleasure with stunning views. In the upper part you have a choice between the glacier slope on the Trift Glacier and the somewhat more spacious Wiesmies slope.
