Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of the skier falling.
Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.
High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.
Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.
At the top of Portella charilift turn left, walk west for a few minutes, approaching Serra de Portella.
Just behind the top station there is a rolling access into the bowl.
The terrain ahead is steep and overall very rocky so good snow cover is required.
The line runs parallel to the chairlift, approaching a second little bowl.
Although the area is rideable it is extremely dangerous due to orographic location and possible avalanche traps.
A safe line is to turn to the left on top of the hill before the second bowl, getting closer to a wide creek nearby the slope.
Follow the creek into the forest and you will end up at the beginners area and where the Canillo top station gondola is located.
