The 7 km long line leads from the top station of Langegg chairlift down to the quaint Hühnersteign hut. This line features some challenging sections.
You access the Ollweite Line slightly below Rotkogel mountain hut in a left-hand turn. First the route is characterized by gently rolling stretches but at the height of the water reservoir it features blocked terrain until it joins the ski slope. After crossing the ski run, the Line is rather flat at the beginning but quite challenging as soon as you head down towards the valley. In its central part it crosses a long, blocky stone field. Then the Ollweite Line winds its way down to the valley. A wooden construction functions as crossover of the Rettenbachalm Trail (675) , watch out - it can be slippery when it's wet. Finally a couple of steep banked turns brung you down to quaint Hühnersteign.
You continue on the ski run for a bit, this stage takes you straight down to the access point of the OHN LINE (6007).
Bikers should absolutely avoid the Single Trail which forks-off from Ollweite Line slightly above Hühnersteign mountain hut! This trail is reserved for walkers and hikers.
Appropriate Equipment Rules! We strongly recommend to wear protective bike gear (knee and elbow pads, helmet, back protector, ...) on all lines, trails, enduro tracks and mountain bike routes within the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN. Enter the Republic only with a bike that meets current quality standards.

Hühnersteign Mountain Hut
The Ollweite Line can be easily reached with the Langegg chairlift. From summer 2018, the 6-seater chairlift will transport mountain bikers up to Rotkogelhütte mountain inn. Langegg chairlift can be reached via EEBME LINE (6005) as the valley station is located directly at the start of OHN LINE (6007).
