Description

At the Jordi Anglés piste's first U-turn corner walk towards the little platform ahead. The entrance is a little bit down on the right but from there you should be able to see where you go. This is a very steep and dangerous area. Only really experienced riders should access this area and ride down this rocky and narrow section. There are quite a few lines and rocks to drop from. Visuals can be made from the slope or for more accurate visuals, from Font Negre chairlift itself. Extreme, quick and fast; that's what this little area has to offer.

Difficulty

Severe

Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.

Medium Exposure (E2)

2 out of 4

As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Remoteness

1 out of 4

Close to help in case of emergency.
