Harakiri Ski Slope

From the series “Top 13 Furious Ski Resorts and Pistes”

'Harakiri' is considered to be the steepest ski slope in Austria. On some of their routes the inclination forms 78 degrees. Not even all professional athletes manage to overcome such a difficult run, not to mention self-assured amateur athletes.

Severe shocks, breaks and contortions - so only the most harmless consequences the inexperienced skiers can get after the impetuous and short descent. The world-famous sportsman Tobias Fankhauser was one of the first to take advantage of the 'black' course and to use it for regular training sessions. He held the successful descent to 'Harakiri' piste for the highest sports … Read all
