Black MamBa

This black piste is THE challenge at the Kitzsteinhorn

The "Black Mamba" winds its way to the Langwiedboden like a poisonous snake.
Poisonous because the narrow Piste No. 14 with a gradient of 63 % is by far the steepest piste in the entire glacier ski resort, and poisonous because once in the "Black Mamba” there is no getting out. But the experts among the skiers and boarders just love the challenge of this slope.
