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.

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.

Description

A great view followed by some relatively gentle but flowing skiing.

If snow conditions allow you can rejoin the valley through some narrow couloirs but generally it's better to take the forest path back.

A short 30 min or so hike to the Aiguille Grive gives access to some great views over the resort.

Descend the west facing slope towards the Col d'Entreporte but don't actually go to the col, continue down the wide open rolling terrain known as the Combe de Grangettes.

Follow this west facing bowl until it meets with Carro Blanc route.
