    Oh dear......looks like a whole face at the side has collapsed and drained down onto the run.
    I was at StAnton for a day recently and noticed they had shut the blue run through the valley from near the top of the Galzig cable car back towards St Anton. I assumed it was to avoid a similar thing happening.?
