SALVANS & TORRALLARDONA PISTES

Sector:  Soldeu
These two wide runs on the north-facing forested slopes above Soldeu village are definitely the best red runs in this sector. They are served by the neighbouring Bosc button tow, meaning you can play around here in circuits for hours, usually free of crowds yet close to all major links and services.

Previously known as the Perdiu and Isard pistes, they were renamed in honour of two of the station's founding fathers and lifelong supporters: Marti Salvans and Josep Torrallardona.

Both runs start together from the Espiolets Plateau level, from the area behind the Fun Food & Gall de Bosc restaurant building, near to the piste-bashers' garage and next to the upper terminal of the Bosc button tow. The Salvans peels off to the skier's right; the Torrallardona takes a direct fall-line descent, making it the most challenging of the two routes.

The Torrallardona sweeps straight down the face of the mountain, with a couple of fast crests to get you airborne if you are brave or unwary. There is plenty of width to make turns though, plus an excellent link with the Bosc button tow at the bottom (skier's left); the route also links seamlessly with the Ós piste for the home run to Soldeu, with an option to link to El Tarter base station via the lower Gall de Bosc.

The Salvans is also a good fast motorway, but instead of taking the direct fall line it sweeps across the mountainside to run out into a wide confluence area, shared with the Avet and Ós pistes, under the lines of the Soldeu gondola & chairlift. Either join the Avet for a challenging fall-line finish parallel to the lifts, or swoop round to the skier's left to join the Ós for all links as per the Torrallardona.
