Sector:  Soldeu
The slopes flowing into the Solana del Forn area off the Tosa dels Espiolets ridge are shared by a number of motorway-wide blue pistes: the Fura, the Ós, the Duc, and the Gall de Bosc. All four routes begin together by funnelling through the slightly narrower and steepish section which marks the official start of the Fura and the Duc, before fanning out to take their respective routes through this wide and open upper valley.

The Fura leaves this upper confluence area by cruising out to the skier's right, over the undulating terrain of this treeless upper valley, merging with the finish sections of the Cucut and Trencalós runs to link with the Assaladors and Solanelles chairlifts below to the skier's right. Although it provides a good link to these lifts, the Fura actually bypasses their base terminals and continues gently down the valley on the skier's lefthand bank of the Solana del Forn stream, on a pretty tree-lined track, all the way round to the Solana chairlift (the parallel route doing the same on the opposite bank is the Obaga).

A great variation for more advanced riders is to leave the Fura whilst still high above the Assaladors and Solanelles chairlifts, to ride over the interpiste terrain to the neighbouring Ós piste (parallel to the skier's left) and then go off-piste amongst the trees ahead-right: there is a challenging natural halfpipe gully in these woods, dropping out to join the Fura again on the banks of the stream below.
