Different popular “castanyades” are held in Andorra for All Saints.
The descent of the Blanc d'Envalira peak western corridor is an easy route in the Grau Roig sector of the Grandvalira ski resort.
Start point: We can get to this route from any point of the Grandvalira ski resort, but the best ways to do so from Grau Roig on the Pic Blanc ski lift. If we don’t want to use mechanical means, we will have to climb from the village of el Pas de la Casa. Once at the return point of the Pic Blanc chairlift, we will climb up the crest leading to the summit of the Pic Blanc at 2,724 m., and will find the corridor on the western side.
Descent: A corridor that narrows with a steep gradient. It is normally in a good state but there is always a high risk of slips or avalanches that could cause serious accidents. Narrow passages, although they allow comfortable turns at a certain speed inside the corridor. We might find stones at the exit! The arrival is at the Coma III ski lift in Grau Roig. Highly recommendable.
