Teso dera Mina II Map

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. You will see a lot of trees and you will find an opening on your right that you should follow until the base. From here, you will reach the blue slope 'Argulls'. You can choose different Tesso dera Mina runs each time, the only problem is that the chairlift is slow. Even though it is short it is prone to avalanches.
