Gondola's line middle section cliff Map

Start just after the junction of Rebeco and El Rio blue slopes, going to the right of the snow canon and grooming machine storage. 50 meters after the storage house on the right you head into a rocky part where some kind of little crevasse can be here between rocks.The entrance is often full of stones, so if you take it easy the first 10 meters you will avoid some rocks. 30 meters after the storage we will follow the cable of the gondola to guide our self. It is rocky and steep, until we will arrive to a lower part with other cliffs. If the cliff is badly negotiated this won't be possible to get back well into your skis for further turns on the middle section. Be prepared for some hazards everywhere in case of low snow cover. At the bottom the line will join back the blue slope “El rio”, bringing you back to the village or Gondola’s.
