Downhill training in the Ötztal valley

Downhill riding is pure adrenaline – and as the name suggests, it’s almost exclusively downhill.

So if you are looking for an adrenaline kick as part of your holiday, we have the thing for you!

  • Line selection
  • Line of sight

  • Jumping technique

The new high alpine natural trail starts at the Tiefenbach glacier at 2,800 m and follows very exposed terrain to “Gaislach”. This trail is not for the faint-hearted!

From the start, it requires a great deal of technical skill and a high level of concentration, because in the exposed rocky landscape around Lake Petzner, the descent (and brief ascent) is extremely steep, sharp and obstructed in some sections. At the end point, you can join the “Löple Trail” and then the “Nene Trail” and finally return to the valley via the “Broate Line” and the “Schtecklar Trail”.

This trail is open for bikers only 3 times a week. You have the opportunity to ride this trail with one of our guides every Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday.

On these days, the trail is open exclusively for the local bike schools from 3 pm. This means that there are no waiting times on the trail.
