Black Mamba

Back again: BLACK MAMBA – the 63%-steep piste on Kitzsteinhorn! The piste is 1.000 metres long, covers 290 metres in altitude and is venomous like a mamba – perfect for all experts who love it steep. The run starts at the valley station of Kristallbahn at 2.265 metres and ends at Langwiedboden. Definitely nothing for the faint-hearted. Adrenalin kicks and a unique feeling of freedom are guaranteed.
