L'Hortell's lift line Map

This is an easy access line, just turn left on top of "L'hortell" lift. The line is really steep in the first section and in the lower section can feel like a piste but there are trees everywhere, especially if there is low snow cover. The line gets well protected from the sun. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here until the steeper part of the line in the higher section but trees are here to help to keep the snow stable. The main hazard to be aware of on this line are the trees and the lift close to you. The line finishes at the bottom of "L'Hortell" lift.
