I had one like that in Lech Austria a couple of years ago and luckily I was skiing with a local ski instructor friend who showed me how.
The trail was lightly skied, maybe a half dozen tracks, steep enough to where you couldn't let it run more than a few seconds and about ten feet wide and in the middle of nowhere as many trail in Europe are.
Abyss on the left, rocjwall on the right and the trail sloping quite a bit to the left toward that abyss and ending into a two thousand foot drop off a rock ledge a bout 500 ft ahead.
After I mentioned the curious tracks left by other skiers he told me that at what looked like the end of the trail it just made a hairpin right turn which could be skied under certain circuymstances but was best negotiated by taking the skis off and walking around the hairpin only four feet wide.
The he explained and showed me how to ski it and why the tracks were so curious. NEVER make a left turn toward the abyss, it would be certain disaster if a slip or fall occured. So we skied it.
Start from next to the rock wall and ski to within two feet of the drop off and make a right turn HARD and just before hitting the wall let your feet drift into the fall line and ski within two feet of the abyss and make the right turn, and repeat. It amounted to J-turns with almost coming to a stop before seeking the fall line. He did it with such elan that it was sure he had done it many times before. Sideslipping or wedging was impossible with ankle deep fairly heavy snow.
But there is alway the expert's method when in daubt, take the skis off and hoof it until you are sure you can make it safely. Letting it rip without knowing EXACTLY what it gets you into is not an option (at least not without a parachute).
Didn't we just hear about a death in a tree well?
