From the top station you can either take the blue-marked "Tom Holzer descent" or the "Rote-Eins" back to the valley. Freeriders can branch off to the "Ploderer-Freeride" in the lower part of the "Rote-Eins" and enjoy the untouched deep snow slopes.
There are also beautiful descents from mount Wetterl, which can be reached via the "Wetterin" plate lift. Winter sports enthusiasts reach the cosy hut "Hansi-Hütte" via the "Murmeltier-Steig" piste, where they are rewarded with roast pork and beer. More experienced drivers can compete at the race track at the plate lift "C".
