La Canaleta's alongside line Map

This is an easy access line; just continue straight after "Creussans" chairlift. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in as there can be a lack of snow. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here other than the left ridge in the middle of the line where avalanches could possibly happen. The main hazard to be aware of on this line is the river in the middle. The line finishes on the red piste "La Canaleta" which leads back to the bottom of Arcalis ski area.
