Sector:  Soldeu
From the top of the Solanelles chairlift, glide down towards the nearby arrival point of the 6-seater Pla de les Pedres Soldeu chairlift, and go to the skier's left of its terminal, where the Serra de les Solanelles piste then begins straight along the flattish ridge. There are great views on clear days from this high ridge, which marks the borderline between Grandvalira's Soldeu & Grau Roig sectors.

The piste runs under the chairlift and continues parallel to it all the way along the upper ridge, with a couple of exits around 300 m (328 yd) ahead: the Obac Solana makes a switchback exit to the skier's left; and the Pla de les Pedres drops off to the skier's right. There are also plenty of opportunities to jump the fence to the skier's right to ride through any powder on the flanks of the ridge, down to join the pistes in the Cubil Valley.

Continuing straight along the ridge brings you to a faster & steeper section (with a mild red profile) before the Serra de les Solanelles veers off to the skier's right as an enjoyable blue cruise linking with [both] the Pla de les Pedres chairlifts. Alternatively, you can just keep straight on along the seamlessly pisted ridge to start the short, but worthwhile, Serrat de la Posa run: this glides along the ridge for another 100 m (109 yd) or so before curving to the skier's left to take on a fair red pitch, dropping down to meet the Obaga run towards a short but tiresome rope tow in the valley below; this tow provides uplift towards the base terminal of the Solana chairlift, and links with the Ós piste for the home run to Soldeu village.
