Description

This is an easily accessed line. From "Port Negre" chairlift take a right and hike to the little summit on your right, which takes 10 minutes to reach. The line is not too steep until the lowest part and this part can be optional as the line can be taken more on the left side. The other part of the line can feel like a piste but there is a big rock on the right of the line so a fall wouldn't be great. The line faces north so the snow quality is usually good. Avalanche risk is pretty low other than the steep part at the bottom of the line. The main hazard is the navigation. The line finishes on the blue piste "La Solana" which leads back to the main Arinsal ski area.
