Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of 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): Certain death in the case of a fall.
A mega-classic of Les Arcs and Paradiski.
The line is steep and serious, often rocky and a fall could be ugly.
But for the right skier in the right conditions the line offers some amazing skiing directly under the lift.
Ski straight from the summit of the Aiguille Rouge under the cables of the cable car.
Follow the fall line and rejoin the Arandelieres piste.
