, and you can't miss the sculpture ahead-left: a work by Mauro Staccioli, this massive steel circle creates the illusion that it's just about to roll off down the mountainside to slice through the base station below; a whimsical and impressive sight.
Advanced riders can leap off into the lower section of the FreeRide Area
, down the steep slopes immediately below the sculpture, to exit via La Canaleta
CAUTION: don't go too far off-piste to the skier's right beyond the sculpture, because precipitous cliffs drop away to the base station far below.
The easy La Basera
piste itself glides safely past the sculpture, but with vertigo-inducing piste-side cliffs adding an exciting dimension to this otherwise very pedestrian-paced route, continuing its gentle home-run following the S-bends of the road towards the upper lodge
level at Arcalís base station, passing the get-on point for the inter-sector Les Portelles chairlift
on the way.
