A [very often sunny] plateau of high ground at 2052 m (6731 ft), housing the Bella Italia bar/restaurant
, midway between the base area at La Caubella
and the main upper ski area on Pic del Cubil.
The slow 2-seater La Serra
and fast 4-seater La Serra II
chairlifts provide uplift to this level when approached from La Caubella; La Serra button tow
also arrives here, rising from the roadside Els Fontanals area at the foot of Pic del Cubil.
When approached from the upper Pic del Cubil slopes, the Pla de la Cot's flat terrain interrupts the flow of the through-route La Serra piste
towards La Caubella, necessitating an inclined skate/walk in order to crest the raised ground next to the chairlifts' arrival points, before you are able to pick up momentum again. The short La Cot rope tow helps with uplift through this section, but, unless you are a beginner or want to stop at the Bella Italia, it is best to bypass this area and take a different route
towards La Caubella.
