EL RIU & ELS ORRIS PISTES

Sector:  La Coma
If these two parallel gentle green pistes seem out-of-place here so far away from the main beginners' slopes, it is simply because this wide snowfield used to house Arcalís' original snowpark, and the short draglift here was its dedicated tow.
The slope angle eventually proved too gentle to sustain serious freestyle modules and this now incongruous little zone was, therefore, returned to its natural state.

Nowadays, it is often furnished with a mini slalom course for the ski school's regular end-of-week novices' tests. However, a notable legacy of its past function is the continued existence of natural berms and windlips, in the stream gully running down the skier's right-hand side of the lift-line; these once formed the backbone of a mini BorderCross course, and still offer an opportunity for a bit of ad-hoc freestyling when riding out from the upper slopes in the direction of this sector's restaurants building and the nearby La Coma and Creussans chairlifts.
