Description

This line needs 10-15 minutes’ walk from the top of the Chairlift Montebajo. No skins are needed- it's more like a gentle walk, everything is quiet well groomed. The entrance is at the top of the small peak close the fence. Most of the time there is no sun in this area, snow will be well protected what mean fresh powder can be found often. If it has rained here then the entrance can be really tricky due some ice on the face; there are also small rocks everywhere on this side of the mountain. There is a really a long wooden fence which you keep on your left. We are aiming to stay close the fences to reach the intersection of black slopes named "Tubo del enebro" and the " Fuente del Tesoro" where you can choose one of these 2 black slopes to join the blue slope "El rio", bringing you back to the village and the gondola's. Remember in case of lack of snow a lot of rocks will appear everywhere.
