It’s not only the patriots who love the “National” Piste in the Lötschental valley. Marked in red, the downhill run is classified as being somewhat difficult and starts at the chairlift top station at Gandegg. Located on the west side of the chairlift route, the descent follows a wide arc down to the base station at Stafel. Located on a sunny hillside with good views, the piste’s high altitude makes it extremely snow-sure. The view is quite stunning – the mountain scenery is dominated by the majestic pyramid of the Bietschhorn.
