Description

As so often in this ski resort this is an easily accessed line, just go left on top of "L'Abarsetar" lift.

A hike of about 30 minutes is needed to reach the top of the "Pic de l'hortell", where the line starts.

Steepness is the key point of the line, which starts in the first gully to the right of the "Pic de l'hortell".

Good weather is needed as the line faces west and gets a lot of sun.

Avalanche risk is pretty important due to the altitude and the steepness of the gully, and good navigation skills are important as the line is into a gully and a mistake could make you fall to the bottom.

The lower part of the line loses some steepness and becomes more gentle.

The line finishes on the blue piste "Les Canals" which leads back to the main ski area of Arcalis.
