Exposure

Exposure

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.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

At the top of the TS Teso dera Mina lift, go along the ridge that follows the black piste Palo del Taso, when the black piste turns right you, keep following the ridge.

The black piste is a good way of measuring the intensity of this short run.

After the black piste there is a small hill on the ridge and just after this hill there is a lift pole; this is where you turn right and enter the steep section.

From the top you can see all the run, including some trees.

At the base you join the Blue piste Argulls.

You can choose several different runs in Tesso dera Mina, the only problem is that the chairlift is slow.

Even though it is short, it is prone to avalanches.
