Description

This line faces west and the resulting sun exposure can make it dangerous as there may be slushy or wet snow in the morning.

If there is fresh snow available, this is a great place to go and enjoy it.

Having crossed the top section of the fence, enjoy 200 metres of nice turns (the run starts at 3200 metres so the snow can be great here).

It's easy to pick up speed on the upper section and your legs will get a good warm up.

Other than the occasional hidden rock there's nothing too much to worry about until you reach some cliffs in the middle of the run.

These can be dropped in several spots, with drops ranging from 5 - 6 metres all the way through to 10 - 15 metres.

Check the conditions before going for one of the big options.

The line then passes onto a ridge which is easily crossed to reach a steep section which can be icy and/or rocky and can be prone to avalanche.

Be careful on this section - a fall here would not be good.

At the end of the run, join one of the 2 red runs "Carril del Collado" or "Collado Alto", either of which bring you back to the "Trucha" line which then accesses several other areas.
