Trailforks Trail of the Month: Z-LINE

Jul 15, 2014

Z-LINE at Bike-Circus - Saalbach Hinterglemm

The Z-Line powered by TREK starts right next to the mid-station of the Zwölferkogel lift, then snakes its way down to the valley with breathtaking views over Saalbach Hinterglemm. The trail takes you over countless berms, wall-rides, and bridges, as well as rollers, tables, and small drops. There is always alternative ways around these features for those who might like to take things a little easier. The trail is designed with ambitious freeriders in mind, though intermediates will also love it. The last wall-ride has got to be the real highlight, with its integrated Action-Snapshot-Station, giving you the chance of getting a spectacular souvenir photo that can be downloaded at www.saalbach.me.
