Wide, easily visible couloir, whose name derives from an old gold mine tunnel in the vicinity.

The route leads from the Rothorn mountain station (2860 m), over almost 900 metres of altitude back to Scharmoin (Rothorn middle station, 1910 m). The snow conditions can vary greatly, from powder snow to frozen avalanche cones, everything is possible.

Trailrunning bedeutet pure Freiheit - Die Freiheit dort zu laufen, wo nur wenige Füße ihre Spuren hinterlassen. Abseits aller Straßen und Asphaltwege. Das ist es, was die Faszination ausmacht, der auch ich verfallen bin!
