Encampanada E Map

Although the Encampanada chutes are strictly controlled and easy access, the Encampanada E is "out of bounds". Few lines are accessible and can be ridden on this side of the mountain. Make sure you have a visual before you decide to ride there. From the top of Encampanada drop N leaving the Cadernera piste. On your right from there, a progressive roller will give you access to a sudden steep area. Another option is to go around following Cadernera for few hundred meters and drop to the left, kind of dropping on a wide creek which will turn to the left. Ride down the steep section; a few good drops are available here from natural features. At the end you will be able to merge and ride Tamarro piste.
