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.
A variation on the classic Ba Bowl.
Never too steep or serious and still a good adventure - but you'll need to walk a little for this one.
From the Col des Mines, walk to the small summit above at 2402m (10-20mins).
Ski down the ridge from the summit either to where the avalanche barriers finish or the lowest point in the ridge between pt 2402m and the Tete des Etablons.
Turn left and ski down the fall line to join the blue piste back to Carrefour.
