Today a quick 50-meter bootpack up from one of the lifts at Hochfügen brought us to a saddle with a beautiful descent into the next valley over, followed by a traversing skin around to the Hochzillertal side, completing basically a slackcountry traverse along the whole ski area. It was nice to make some turns on these slopes that I've had my eyes on for a while!
