Description

At the top of the Pic Blanc chairlift turn left (there are few fences that you should have to go around.) Find the ridge and corner where you will be able to see Font Negre chairlift and just there you will find the access to this 2 section line. Drop in there traversing to the right, going to the ridge on the lower right. Jordi Anglés piste is just below and you will get really close. This could be a lower entry point to the line. At this point where the slope turns you should follow the ridge down, leaving the piste on your left. Soon the piste will start going away, meanwhile you ride down the ridge and a flat area with a lower pass in the middle should appear. Watch out, do not follow the ridge and ride down to the right. Go through that little pass and another big wide slope will open up. Isard piste is at the bottom.
