The highest point in the Leukerbad-Torrent ski area is aptly named Schwalbennest (swallow’s nest). It is at this panoramic point that the long and varied downhill run to Flaschen starts. To warm up you can enjoy the wide Lingelen piste, which is perfect for carving. After this you have the most demanding section of the descent – short swings are in the order of the day on the black-marked Torrentstafel Piste. Finish up on the Planedri Piste, which runs over rolling hills to the Flaschen valley station.
