FreeridingFreeriders should check out the stuff just below the peak of Veleta at 3398m. To do this, traverse to the Olimpica and where this crosses the Diagonal, kick hard to your left and travel off piste on an itinerary known as Tajos de la Virgen. The view above you is truly stunning, (a bowl edged with dramatic cliffs). The Dilar chair takes you towards the Radio Telescope, where after a walk along the ridge you can see below a huge expanse of off-piste which you have just travelled over on the chair. Take any line, the slope is a good safe angle with an easy traverse back to the Solana piste and the Dilar chair.
FreestylersFreestylers have to make do most of the time, with an array of unusual natural hits. They do build a pipe when snow conditions permit it. However, if you ride over to Tajos de la Virgen run, you'll find rolling jumps verging into vertical kickers. Kick back again towards the Cartujo piste and make use of the piste edge with it's many varied banked sides to gain more air time.
PistesCarvers are much in evidence here as the slopes lend themselves really well to edging a board over at speed, especially on the fast black trails. Particular good blacks for this are down from the Borreguilles.
BeginnersBeginners; the Borreguilles area is full on for learning the art of hurtling down a mountain on a board, but not the only place to go. Much of this resort is excellent for novices with good snowboard instruction facilities.
