EL BESURT PISTE

Sector:  Pal
A short red-graded meander, not far from La Caubella base area; accessed from the busy Pla de la Cot level via the gentle ridge-run of its easier twin, El Besurt II.

About 100 m (109 yd) along the shared start section, El Besurt spills off the skier's left-hand side of the ridge and immediately picks up pace as a fast motorway-wide red run. The top section is a fairly direct fall-line descent, before swinging out to the skier's right into a swath through the trees to finish on a narrow exit track, ending abruptly when it meets the Transversal trail (CAUTION: check your speed and stay alert for inexperienced piste users coming from your [skier's] right).

Another option is to ride off the skier's righthand side of the piste midway down, before the point where it passes under the line of the 4-seater La Serra II chairlift. You can then follow the steeper, ungroomed, narrow cutting through the trees down the line of the lift pylons. As with the main pisted route, exercise caution as you approach the finish at the T-junction with the Transversal, especially because this off-piste variation has a 2 m (6½ ft) drop-off at the end!

The Transversal then provides a very gentle link to the detachable La Serra II and fixed La Carbonera chairlifts.

This side of the mountain is north-facing, so despite the low altitude, El Besurt holds its snow well and it is a good way for competent riders to bypass the long flat La Serra piste when heading towards La Caubella.
