Spanish term or phrase: Cajon plano
No context, just the features of the different pistes at a ski resort

"1 cajon plano de nivel principiante de 3 m."

Elsewhere "plano" is mentioned a fair bit, I'm taking it that this is the flat bit at the end, the run in, no?

flat rail/box rail
Explanation:
according to my daughter, this could be a flatter and wider version of what snowboarders call a "rail", adapted for beginners. she says it looks a bit like a box, but that 3 m would be rather high. Another possibility: a "half pipe"?
