Situated below and to the rear of the Refugi bar/restaurant
, this lift presents most beginners with their first experience of using a chairlift. Slow-moving and easy to get on, it is specifically geared and sited to provide novices with a progression route out of the main beginners' zone
. It is also handy for leaving the Refugi bar/restaurant area, otherwise you have to walk across the busy beginners' slopes to reach the base lodge
and main ski lifts.
at the top: dismount to the left or right for the short El Cortal pistes
, U-turning down either side of the lift-line (off to the left is the easiest); dismounting to the left also allows you to join the final section of Arinsal's arterial Les Fonts run
, splicing seamlessly into the Bony slope
running to the base lodge and main ski lifts.
