The double-decker cable railway and the chair lifts take you to Viderjoch. On Viderjoch the trail towards Velillscharte, the crossing to the Velill valley, begins. The Velill trail was designed by trail designer Christian Piccolruaz with abutters, step-up and a wooden drop. There are also elevated curves, smaller floaters and lots of flow. From the upper Velillalpe you can either follow the steep trail along the Velillbach or take the road down towards Ischgl.
