Hahnenkamm downhill ski run

Yesterday we went for a big walk to the top of the Hahnenkamm lift and found the top of the Hahnenkamm ski run, which is one of the steepest and famous in the world.
At the top they have set up the starting gate so people can stand and look out to see how steep it is, and on the way down they show the route and it is possible to follow sections of it. 

We got to one corner of the path and there is a television screen showing highlights of the skiers at that section, and the notice says that they reach speeds of 140 kms per hour! 
It was like the side of a cliff in sections and they do the whole course in less than two minutes. It took us two hours to walk down. 
Finally, our hotel is in a lovely position and we could see it from the restaurant right at the top.
