Description

This is one of the least popular freeride lines here and can be done only when snow conditions (read snowpack) are good enough. You will need both a thick snowpack and opportune avalanche conditions because nobody will see you here in case of a slide. Although this the run is easy it is recommended for intermediate to expert riders just because it's important to follow the right lines to avoid a walk on flat terrain and deep snow... Drop in from the black pistes at Cieloalto, staying leftwards and following the entry mapped here. Then you go through varying terrain, both woods and open slopes, some steeper areas as well as some almost flat sections. It's one of the best freerides here because it doesn't finish on an area served by lifts and this lack of convenience keeps people away!
