Description

Easily accessed line as chairlifts "Parador I and II" will bring you there, however remember even though the line is alongside a red slope, this area can be technical due to the low altitude, as lack of snow is often present here. The line is steep as well as we are passing on top of a little river, where mistakes could be serious. Also the line is located between 2 pistes which makes higher the risk of collisions in case of loss of control. Remember this area is close the piste and artificial snow can come into the line meaning you could run into a mixture of snow types. The line will join red slope "Águila" bringing you back to the bottom of the ski resort.
