Description

Another easily accessed line as the red slope "L'Estany" is the start point of the line; turn left from the red piste. The first part of the line isn't too complicated however the second part of the line from the big turn off the red slope is really steep - about 50 degrees into the narrow gully part. Good weather is important as the line faces south and the sun can affect the snow conditions. Also make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty important into the main steep gully. The lower section of the line is more gentle and the line finishes on the green piste "La Basera" which leads back to the bottom of Arcalis ski resort.
