La Canaleta's line Map

This is an easily accessed line as you just need to follow green slope "La Basera" and turn left 50 meters after entering into the track area of the slope. The line is pretty short but gets some steepness in the first section, where snow cover is an important part of the line, as we are below 2000 meters. A good base is needed before entering the area. The line faces north, which keeps away the sun but the area can be frozen in the morning. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here other than in the higher part due to the steepness. The main hazard to be aware of is the junction with the red slope "La Canaleta" where collisions might happen with other skiers. The line finishes on the red piste "La Canaleta" which leads back to the bottom of Arcalis ski resort.
