A beautiful run, but it has a high avalanche risk. It is only doable in really good snow conditions when the snow pack is stable and even then it will be a 3k walk back to resort. This run starts at the top of the TS Soleil lift, from where you go under the chairlift and follow it until it intersects at a sharp angle with the blue slope Ta Argulls. From there you will start to go to your right towards the base of the canyon. Then you have to follow the canyon until it meets the road. If you follow the canyon in its base you will be exposed to avalanches, so it is recommended that you stay on one side or the other, taking advantage of the steep sections on both sides. Once on the road, you will have a 3km walk back to Baqueira 1500. If you are an experienced skier and you are fit enough to walk back after a day skiing, give it a go if conditions are good.
