Description

This is an easily accessed line as turn left at the top "Zayas" T-bar. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover due the wind exposure. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low around here. It is always frozen in the morning in this area. Last hazard is the crossing of red slope "Águila" into the middle of the run. The line finishes on the blue piste "Zorro" which leads back to Borreguiles area.
