Black pistes for experts

When it comes to skiing and you are only looking for faster, longer, further, steeper, then are the Trass or Black Mamba clearly the right pistes for you. These two ski pistes are "deep" black, steep and challenging.Just right for you if you like to push your carving ski with power into the turns, prefer proper inclines in the curves and love it when you can really feel your thighs. 

"Trass" -a real ski sport legend

The legendary "Trass"leading from the Schmittenhöhe requires plenty of stamina, power and good skiing technique. The difference of 1.000 altitude metres and a length of 4.150 metres result in incline of up to 70 % - here you better know what to do. But anyone who dares to take this challenge will be rewarded with fantastic ski sport and sporty pistes. Locals and non-locals alike are delighted when the Zell am See Ski Club invites to the Trass Run - an event once a year for real skiers and fans of a wild ride across the region's blackest piste.

"Even as a child and as well as a Pro I loved training on the Trass. The difference of 1.000 altitude metres helps the growth of the thigh muscles. Anyone racing this piste must be a good skier. The Black Mamba at the Kitzsteinhorn is still quite new but legendary nonetheless. When I am home and have a bit of time to ski, then you often find me on the Black Mamba - a real super piste"
