Description

This is an easily accessed line as it is really close the slopes- just turn left off the "Águila" red slope. The line is not steep and can feel like a piste but there are some rocks about if there is low snow cover. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty low as the line is not that steep. Navigation is important and in order to avoid the rocks stay close to red slope "Copa del Mundo". The line finishes on the blue piste "Directa" which leads back to "Virgen de las Nieves" chairlift or Sierra Nevada village if wanted.
