Els Feixan's line Map

This is an easily accessed line as "Els Feixan'" top lift is the start of the line. The line is starts in front of the lift and into the first section can feel like a piste but there are some rocks in the lowest section if there is low snow cover. The line gets a lot of sun (it faces E) so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here due to the lack of steepness. Trees are all long the line before the lower section where a small steep part is present close to the trees. This is the only tricky section and the only part where avalanche is a concern. The line finishes on the green piste "La Basera" which leads back to the bottom of Arcalis ski area.
