Description

Normally the Dilar chairlift is used to get out of the Laguna Valley, but there is also some really nice off piste skiing underneath it. It is wide and not very difficult (red level); just look as you go up the chairlift for the best way to go. Only with good snow will there be no rocks. The line faces S and the snow gets heavy quickly since it gets sun all day long.

Difficulty

Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
