Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of the skier falling.
Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.
Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.
High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.
Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.
This run and its twin Pancheron 1 are some of the most popular in the resort.
Very easy to reach - just get the Pancheron lift and drop in under the lift line - it's fun because it's easy to keep some speed and enjoy the powder.
Anyway, pay attention to rocks and - as you can see by the Gazex placed on both sides of the line underneath the lift - to avalanches.
The snow slide possibility is very high here, so you must read the avalanche bulletin and avoid this run if the conditions are not favourable (suitable might be avalanche risk 1,2 or low 3 maximum).
When an avalanche happens here, it really moves a lot of snow and damages everything in its path.
