Although not a fast lift, the Assaladors is a useful link to the highest point in the Soldeu-El Tarter ski area: the Tossal de la Llosada at 2560 m (8400 ft). This summit is a junction point for the two core sectors, providing access to almost the entire northern half of Grandvalira, and facilitates onward links towards the Canillo sector to the west and the Grau Roig sector to the south-east.
The pistes directly below you on the journey up are, from looker's left to right: the Obaga
, the Solana
, and the Marmota
. About midway into the journey you get a bird's-eye view of the Boarder/SkierCross course below-left on the Solana piste
, which utilises the natural contours of a mountain stream gully, some sections of which are as big as a halfpipe.
at the summit, either dismount to the left and U-turn behind the WCs hut to start the Solana
, and/or to access the Cortalets link-track
towards the Grau Roig sector; or, dismount straight ahead and skate over the slightly inclined ground towards the arrival point of the 6-seater Llosada chairlift, where the most challenging blues & reds off this summit then begin (orientation & onwards links
). Otherwise, dismount to the right for the easy upper section of the Gall de Bosc
, Grandvalira's longest piste, which runs all the way to the base station at El Tarter
, covering a distance of 8.2 km (just over 5 miles) and passing through virtually all areas of the Soldeu-El Tarter ski sectors on the way.
