Dorada line Map

This line is west facing meaning some sun exposure which can make this line dangerous in the afternoon. Take the red slope "Dorada's" , then turn right with some lovely open turns on this top section. Unless it is rocky there is nothing to be worry about - the middle cliff is really nice to take and you will able to see this one from afar what you are jumping and where you will finish after this but watch out for a potential icy landing. After the cliff there are some lovely turns at the bottom of the line, where some speed can be taken. You rejoin the red slope bringing you back to the "Trucha" line.
