I hope you like climbing, because riders are in for plenty of switchbacks that were added to keep the gradient manageable up The Zipper. The trail is fairly wide and the corners aren't overly tight, so it's fairly beginner friendly for those who are okay putting in some effort.

About halfway up there's a short steep section that you'll want to build some speed for. The trail ends on an access road/cutting, turn right to either climb up Ryanocoaster or head down the lower half towards Forks and Spoons or go left to head towards Schladming.
