Due to construction operations in this area of the mountain, the access route to the south downhill trail has been wiped out and has to be changed like this for the time being. When contractors have finished installing the new chair lift there will be another update to this route.

Access Info

Take the chairlift over the weekends or simply walk up the mountain.

Disclaimer

This area is a construction area, riders must stay alert for traffic of heavy machinery!
