LLosada Couloir I Map

From the top of Llosada start riding Guineu. Ride the slope for 200 meters, then a flat area starts on the right side. From there you will be able to see a meteorologic station, go through and soon a pass will open on the right. That's the entrance for the first couloir. Be aware of finding that one properly and do not search for it very close before. There is a cliff area where after good snowfall, wind corners tend to take shape at the edge. The same applies for the entry. Watch out for wind corners. Visuals can be made from Llosada chairlift and Llop. The coulouir starts steep with a rocky island in the middle, when the snow is good it is a great drop to hit. Watch out, the area has very sharp rocks hidden especially where the rocky island. Good run with short technical and challenging terrain.
