Lagonilos line Map

At the top of the "Laguna" chairlift, we will need to follow the red slope "Olimipica", before turning right on the red slope "Lagunillos". Keep your speed and as the red slope goes diagonally down left you go right, gently down then flat, heading for a flat peak ahead of you, with some poling or side stepping. There is a broad gully beyond this which should hold good snow, watching out for rocks early season. This lower section of the mountain is steeper than the top section and cliffs can be jumped as well if you choose, eventually taking you down to the "Cuesta de las Artesillas" red slope after a decent pitch of a good angle.
