Llac de Cubil area Map

This is a fun, easy access off-piste area for intermediate riders. It's steep and terrain awareness is an issue as there is rocky terrain and few little cliffs on the lower left. The eastern face of Pic baix de Cubil is a great area to start getting serious about backcountry terrain. To access the area turn right at the top of the Llac de Cubil chairlift and traverse just below the cliff. Just remember about the cliffs on the lower left and be aware of the lake as well. Despite these dangers the skiing is fantastic!
