The lowest altitude piste in the sector, providing a ‘home run’ all the way down from Comallempla 1950
to the Cota 1550 suburb of Arinsal village.
The route is accessed via the short El Cortal piste
, past the Refugi bar/restaurant
at the far side of the beginners' zone
, beyond the 4-seater El Cortal chairlift
It begins way over on the far side of the crèche building and follows the trail of a dirt-track road, which winds in horseshoe bends gently down through quiet woods, with impressive views, to finish next to the Aparthotel Crest at the base of the fast 6-seater Josep Serra chairlift
Unfortunately, due to the low altitude and the resulting poor snow cover, the route is often closed. But, when snow conditions permit, it is definitely worth a go; even if just for the novelty of completing a summit-to-base home run. There's a bar at the finish; handy for toasting your good fortune if you happen to visit when the route is open. Plans are afoot to install more snowmaking equipment to secure the viability of this route.
