La Coma's chairlift line Map

This is an easily accessed line. Turn right on top of the "La Basera" chairlift. Follow the red piste "La Balma" and turn right 10 meters after passing under the chairlift. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some rocks and few little cliffs. Navigation is really easy - just follow the line into the small gully where no hazards should be present. Cliffs can be jumped but they are optional and avalanche risk is pretty low around here due the lack of steepness. Great skiing skills are not really required. The line finishes on the red piste "La Balma" which leads back to "La Coma" ski area or the bottom of Arcalis ski area.
