Canal de les Solanelles Map

A few metres left from the top of Encampanada lift, Canal de les Solanelles offers you the chance to ride serious alpine terrain with great and challenging steep slopes at the beginning and then wonderful mellow forest area through a wide creek and rolling terrain. Although the terrain is easy in terms of orientation and direction do not underestimate the first section. That's where the most dangerous section is; where the steep part is. Avalanche equipment is highly recommended.
