Professional sportsmen train in speed disciplines on the Franz Heinzer piste, and do their downhill and super-G races on it, too. Whoever is good at skiing and feels venturous enough can have a go like them. But beware, the piste is very steep and you basically zoom down towards the valley in a direct line.

Destination: Valley station chairlift Klingenstock 1,346 metres above sea level

A chairlift takes you to the starting point.
The racetrack has a high safety standard. This was also important to Franz Heinzer, after whom it is named. He was world champion in 1991 and one of the most successful Swiss ski racers.
