Storenos Eastside

Wind

Good: Any direction / very strong on NW, can be gusty on SW

If there is wind you can kite here. Interestingly the falling winds (W-NW) tend often to be stronger on the lee side of the Nos than on the windward side. The wind decreases as you ride further down into the forest and often increases further to the north. When the forecast is above 1om/s you have to expect gusts. The forecast needs to be above 6 ms at the top before you can dare to venture lower and into the forest... I have seen a many people going to low and having to do the walk of shame to get back to the ski piste. You can ask at the bottom of the ski lift what the wind at the top is before you decide to ride up.

Level

Beginner to Advanced

Ride

The area offers anything from tree rides in flat light to big air jumping and some hidden powder bowls (find them yourselves). I can be wind pressed at the top very quickly so the trees are the savior for those powder affectionados.

Dangers

Keep well away from x-country skiers and beware that some of the higher peaks have slopes that are mildly avalanche prone, especially after a heavy NW wind. Powder can be very deep here.  Make sure you have equipment to walk back to the road or ski / x-country pistes. Perfect phone reception. The ski patrol +473732081 may even help you if you break a leg.

Getting there

Take the lift up or walk to the top of the lowest T-bar lift. 100m to the northeast of this a good launching site to gain higher ground.
