Exposure

Exposure

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.

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

Description

From top of the Trittkopf gondola turn left and start hiking up to the antenna.

Beware, here is usually a large cornice along the entire ridge so do not get too close to the edge, this also indicates the run is on the leeside.

From the antenna head down towards a broad shoulder then head right onto some steep then levelling out terrain into the Pazueltal valley where one will connect with the freeride route from Valluga.

There are many options to take once off the broad shoulder and there is some amazing fun terrain to be found in this valley and all lines will lead to the Pazueltal valley and then eventually onto the Trittalpe chairlift.

The lower part of this run can be accessed via the Hexenboden chairlift and a traverse around the shoulder. This valley has a great feeling of being far away from the ski area and a true backcountry feel yet still accessible via lifts.
