Soleil Map

At the top of the 'TSD Mirador' you will be facing the piste 'Soleil'. Go to its right and then down, keeping TS Manaud as a point of reference. During the season there are some snowdrifts created along this run that people make into nice jumps. All these snowdrifts are easily avoidable on a clear day. Go and choose your powder line - wherever you go you will end up back on the red piste Soleil. If the snow conditions are good you can extend this free-ride, following the line of TS Manaud then the small valley after the crossing of TS Manaud and Soleil. This will take you to the blue piste Ta Argulls. If the snow is bad or you are not sure about the snow conditions just follow Soleil at the end of this beautiful powder run.
