The Dossau snowdrift Map

From the top of the TS Dossau lift, follow the red run Dossau to your right and after 200m, turn to your left to enter this snowdrift area. There's a small mound that becomes a really nice kicker, the height of which will vary from 1 to 5 metres depending on snowfall and the middle of this snowdrift is generally higher than both sides. Make sure that you check the landing as it can change day by day as well as the tip of the kicker, because in certain conditions it can collapse. From there, you will be able to get back to the red slope Egua 1 or you can keep following the powder run down. This is a really good, clear open area where you can see most of your options, take care around the river that goes to the right hand side of Egua 1, in bad visibility it can be dangerous, as there is sometimes a whole. You will finish this run at the bottom of Egua 1 where you can take TS Dossau or TS Pla de Beret.
