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.

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.

Description

Going down from the top of Funitel on the Kandahar piste you need to walk 5-10 minutes to Col de Sex Mort.

No skinning is needed.

Head down the valley till it becomes really flat where you need to take care.

Later in the season if you want spring snow (and you're not too late in the day) head further to your left to ski the S facing slopes descending from les Faverges.

Straight down you will find some cliffs where it is easy to think you could exit, but you can't.

So we need to cut to the right to a wide, easy and super fun run.

Get to another valley crossing to the left and traverse all the way to the left to avoid the river.

You join Petite Faverge run for the way out. The exit is a flat summer track that goes through some cliff bands (above and below).

Go round the mountain to get back to the Aminona part of the ski area.

You will start seeing some houses, a church, and open powder fields that tend to have great snow.

Ski down, always aiming to the right.

Once you encounter the run that takes you back to the bottom of the Aminona sector, make sure you don't drop below this since there are many cliffs in that area.

Follow the slope all the way down to the bus stop at the base.

There is a bus every 15 min which takes you to Barzettes lift.
