Tossa d'Espiolets Sud Map

A great wide and steep area with a little cliff to drop when the snow conditions are good, with narrow passes and challenging terrain, ideal for intermediate to advanced riders pushing their boundaries. From the top of the Tosa d'Espiolets chairlift drop into the Esquirol piste going towards Miquel piste. It's a very flat, large area so Miquel will be really far away and uphill but stick to the traverse in that direction. Another way in is coming down from Esquirol from Tosa de Llosada, then just drop left after Miquel intersection. A very progressive roller will lead you into the steep section. At the very center of it there are few cliffs which are not rideable but despite this there are fun features on both sides so keep a heads up for those. Once at the bottom traverse to the right through the scattered forest - do not cross the creek. At the end you will find the Esquirol piste.
