Information about the Black Mamba

Who dares to take on this challenge? Stefan Unterkofler does – he loves this slope. You should certainly be a reasonably experienced skier before considering this slope. Beginners should definitely avoid the Black Mamba!

The Black Mamba is ideal for skiers who love narrow slopes, room enough only for tight turns, and steep slopes!
