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.

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

Description

A classic line straight down the fall line, skiers right of La Tournelle.

From the top of the Tournelle chair, leave the piste and stay as high as possible, traversing to the right.

Follow the line straight down to the narrow clearing in the trees, continuing down to the hiking path which returns to the Savoleyres cable car or follow the line all the way down to the Verbier Sports Centre where you will need to catch a bus back to town or the lift system.

The skiing here is often good early season after a fresh dump of snow.

The grassy slopes don't need much snow cover to make for good skiing.

Later in the season, whilst you get to enjoy the sunny skiing, the snow suffers due to the South facing aspect.
