Red, blue and black
the right slope for every type of skier
Every one of us respects the road signs on the streets of Austria. Up on the slopes, the signs and markings can be a bit confusing if you’re not familiar with them. What do all the colours mean? What types of slopes are there? What are the characteristics of a red, blue or black slope? We have all the answers for you!
What colour of slope is right for me?
As is common in most ski resorts, the slopes of Kappl are categorised in different colours depending on their difficulty level. For instance, black slopes indicate particularly steep descents only suitable for experienced skiers. The numbers on the signposts are for orientation purposes.
- Five blue slopes: Perfect for beginners. Wide, flat runs offer enough space to practice.
- Eight red slopes: Mostly flat runs with some steeper sections. Perfect for carving and relaxed skiing!
- Four black slopes: Perfect for advanced skiers and pros. Steep gradients, mogul slopes or special runs – there are many challenging choices for discerning winter sports athletes!
- Five ski routes: A “route” is a slope that is marked and secured but not groomed. Ideal for powder lovers and adventure seekers!
