The Hohstock Dream Ride
The Hohstock experience is breathtaking. It is, what the Belalp motto literally stands for: «A Little Closer to Heaven. » Your descent begins, where others enjoy their peak wine - at 3100 m a.s.l. After passing through a short tunnel, you will dive off an exhilarating piste. The slope is up to 60% steep. After fresh snow (which we have a lot of in the most snow-reliable region of the Alps) the maidenly ungroomed slope, which is secured from avalanches, is opened for freeriders for a short time. The Hohstock piste ends at 2320 m a.s.l. with an invitation to a well-deserved mulled wine. Those, who haven't had enough, can continue their lines down to Blatten - this would be the original route of the legendary Witches' Descent with a length of 12 km and an altitude difference of 1778 metres!
