Aftersteg Ski Lift - Slope 1 - Black Forest - Germany

Exit to the Left of the Aftersteg Ski Lift, the Langmattlift in the Black Forest.

The Track of the Lift ends at a narrow farmer track which you can follow to the left in the direction of the trees - Common Spruce, Picea abies. The Common or European Spruce is still the most common tree in the Black Forest. The dark and shadily forests of European Spruce have given the 'Black' Forest Region the name.

The Farm Track with its mild slope brings you to a vast open area with lot of off piste skiing opportunities.

As well you have a view down the slope at left hand side of the lift (seen in the moving direction of the ski lift) with its small station down in the valley.

Enjoy the ride on the slope and off piste on this side of the lift.....

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
