Description

At the top of Portella charilift turn left, walk west for a few minutes, approaching Serra de Portella.

Just behind the top station there is a rolling access into the bowl.

The terrain ahead is steep and overall very rocky so good snow cover is required.

The line runs parallel to the chairlift, approaching a second little bowl.

Although the area is rideable it is extremely dangerous due to orographic location and possible avalanche traps.

A safe line is to turn to the left on top of the hill before the second bowl, getting closer to a wide creek nearby the slope.

Follow the creek into the forest and you will end up at the beginners area and where the Canillo top station gondola is located.
