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 Madloch chairlift traverse back under the chairlift heading north east around the Madlochspitze peak.

Stay high on this traverse, this is difficult on a snowboard but possible and a ski pole would be helpful to push along.

The access into the first section, a small chute, is fairly steep.

Either head down this chute, finding a suitable left turn to access the large bowl, or continue a traverse across into the bowl at a higher level. Once into the bowl there is an endless choice of lines one can take.

Keeping right there are less cliffs and some awesome terrain with small drops and open areas for some large turns. At the bottom of this section there is a small hike, from here the slope then joins with the Wiesele run and the road will come into view.

A choice of line can be made, the slope finishing at the tunnel and a skate alongside to the bus stop.

Jump on the bus and do it again if you wish.
