Description

This is one of the pearls of Baqueira which is highly recommended for experienced skiers. From the top of the Jorge Jordan lift, go around the building to your right and look for a couloir which starts 100m away from the building. Ski between the big cliffs and don't stop in the middle and enjoy the views while skiing - it is a dangerous place. Once you have skied through the big cliffs, turn left, following the base of these beautiful cliffs. Ski between the trees then down a mellow slope until you reach the Luis Arias run. From here, you can see the Vinheta and Marconi, the two most extreme freeride runs in the area.
