If you take the Jorge Jordana lift, then ski down the Luis Arias black slope for about 800m, you see a wooden fence to your right. Just after that there is a little opening on the right and you can see that it starts going down. Drop off right. The slope has a tendency to go left between some trees. Once you have passed the trees, you will have to start traversing left to avoid skiing over the cliff (which is under your feet). Keep crossing for around 100m, then you can continue to make turns down the run. Be careful in case of avalanches and enjoy one of the best powder spots this ski resort has. You will reach the Escornacrabes trail that will guide you back to the pistes, you will come out at the bottom of the Luis Arias slope. This is a dangerous run with a high avalanche risk.
