Peira Roja Map

From the top of the Blanhiblar lift, go left and stay parallel to the cafe until you see a small cliff. Follow the base of this cliff along until it disappears and the terrain becomes wider. Try to stay close to the creek, even though it is open terrain; if you go too far left you might end up at some cliffs. This run finishes on the road, 1.5km away from the Beret parking lot. This run has a little bit of everything, skiing along a cliff as well as open areas. Good riders can look for some jumps from the cliffs on the right hand side. The snow conditions in this area are quite tricky, the fact that it is SE facing makes good snow conditions here unusual.
