Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) 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.
Although not difficult, this line feels wild and takes you onto some huge south facing slopes.
As such, pick your days carefully because the avalanche danger can be significant here.
In good conditions, this is a fantastic ski line.
Start at the top of the Frau-Hitt-Warte chairlift and traverse west onto the huge open face immediately in front of you as you get off the chairlift.
Ski across the top of one gully to reach a second one.
Drop into this wherever looks best and enjoy the ride through open trees followed by a narrow gully below.
All too soon you will reach an established track leading back left onto the lower pistes of the Nordkette area.
