Description

From the top of the TS Teso dera Mina lift, go along the ridge that follows the black piste Palo del Taso and when the black piste turns right you, keep following the ridge. The black piste is a good way of measuring the intensity of this short run. After the black piste there is a small hill on the ridge and just after this hill there is a lift pole; this is where you turn right and enter the steep section. From the top you can see all the run, including some trees. At the base you join the Blue piste Argulls. You can choose several different runs in Tesso dera Mina, the only problem is that the chairlift is slow. Even though it is short, this line is prone to avalanches so pick your day carefully when you choose to come here.
