Description

From the top of the Llosada chairlift start riding the Guineu piste. Descend the piste for 200 meters, then a flat area starts on the right side. From there you will be able to see a meteorological station. Go through and soon a pass will open on the right. Keep going close to the ridge and one of the chairlift towers should be visible. The ridge on this section allows you to go a little bit more to the right. Do not drop to the right, keep going following the flat ridge. Soon a little bow will show up with the ridge ending, you can keep going and drop in at the end, riding down the ridge or drop into one of the couloirs in the little bowl. Anyway the terrain you will find here is narrow and passes among rocks and reasonably steep. An area reserved for advanced and experienced skiers. Like the other couloirs the lines end up at Llop.
