As you enjoy the Alpine panorama at the Scex Rouge mountain station (2,971 m, Restaurant Botta), make sure those bindings are firmly fastened before taking off. Start with a few swings on the blue section of slope down to the glacier surface. When you reach the Oldensattel take a little breather and enjoy views from the valley as far as Gstaad. After a few deep breaths, it’s time to tackle some steep sections with their black-coded level of difficulty. To your right, you’ll see the imposing Sanetsch mountain range. A final steep descent takes you to the Oldenalp (1,834 metres) where there is a snow bar – you would have now dropped a whopping 1,137 metres in altitude. After a chairlift ride, you’ll be tempted to linger on the sun terrace on Oldenegg (Oldegg mountain restaurant, 1,919 m).
This piste is very snow-sure and usually well accessible until early May (artificial snow on the Oldensattel-Oldenalp section). When there is enough snow, it is possible to make the descent (3 km) from Oldenegg (1,919 m) to Reusch (1,350 m) – an enjoyable descent over short, gentle slopes and narrow trails (black slope).
Special features of the «multilingual» Combe d'Audon / Olden ski trail: It starts in Canton Vaud and crosses Valais territory before taking you into Canton Bern (from the Oldensattel). The three cantons converge at the peak of the Oldenhorn (3,123 m). It forms part of two winter sports regions: Bernese Oberland / Gstaad Mountain Rides and the Lake Geneva Region / Vaud Alps.
