Utlima lines before laguna's freeride Map

Take the usual access as if going to the laguna's freeride area. Some poling is needed but not as much as the other laguna's area. This line is the second gully after the black slope "Tajo de la virgin", which is steeper than the first gully. Remember that this line is complex, as the entrance is really steep. The gully, once in, is quite easy to ride as it is wide and without too many rocks, the dangerous part is the steepness but also the risk of avalanche. At the end of the run you will join the red slope "olimpica" again like most of the lines in the laguna's area and this will then bring you back to the express chairlift.
