Exposure

Exposure

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.

As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

From the top of Youla cable car station exit and head right to cross the big wind barrier at its left side.

Ski down (pay attention for hidden rocks) then take the first couloir on your right.

Head down, always keeping a bit right, pointing towards the Comba Moretta piste.

After the steep part an easy traverse rightwards allow you to join the piste almost at its end.

Take care to avoid the couloirs straight below this run that take you into the forbidden and dangerous area.

Take care after heavy snowfall or strong wind, as avalanche risk can be high.
