Analysing terrain data
2 - 3
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.
From Plagne Bellecôte, join the path above the Roche de Mio cable car station (towards the ice rink).
It winds gently up to the Dou du Praz plateau (beware of the portion also used by pedestrians). At Dou du Praz, magnificent view of Mont Blanc (orientation table, picnic tables).
Continue by the path that passes near the restaurant, beware of the track crossings (at this level, you can take the track to go down to Plagne Centre). Continue the ascent following the route to the bottom of the Col de Forcle valley.
From there cross the downhill ski slope and climb into the valley.
