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.
Wonderful off-piste amongst the steep forest around the Jolanda chairlift.
With many lines to choose from and reliable snow cover, this area is a great choice after a big snowfall.
In spring time however, this south facing slope looses its snow very quickly. From the top of the Jolanda chairlift, head out to the right and ski into the forest.
Take the best line and descend directly downhill to reach the little old village of Netscho.
Continue down, curving round to the right where the terrain becomes steeper, until you reach an artificial valley in the bottom of the wooded area.
Gressony lies just beyond.
