Description

When accessing from Encampanada button lift the line is just ahead. Often there is a control ski patrol for avalanche equipment. The line is very easy, dropping into the wide chute the slope will start opening up. There is a little creek starting halfway which you can pass either on the left side or the right. Then just keep riding straight down enjoying the last turns until you merge with the Tamarro piste or you decide to join Solanelles creek on the left.
