Analysing terrain data
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.
Just amazing! These are lines that you will remember.
At the hard left corner of the Isard piste, which is accessed from the Encampanada draglift, you have to hike up the ridge on your left.
It's an approximately 15 minutes walk that will carry you to heaven.
There are a few fences that will help you to stay in the right direction at the top of the ridge.
Once at the top you can start riding, following the fences and the ridge on your right.
The first section is often a hard area hit by the wind but as soon as you start riding into the scattered small pines an opening will show up and a full run will open up below you.
Just one word now: Enjoy.
