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.
From the Rufikopf cable car head down the blue run 38 and once past the flat section turn left to traverse above the Schuttboden T-bar.
Keep as high as possible along the traverse here, this can be difficult on a snowboard.
Traverse around the shoulder of the Rufispitze peak crossing over a few gullies. Two choices from this point.
Either continue in the same southerly direction towards the Trittalp chairlift where the slope comes into view and a chance to get some nice open turns in on gentle terrain. Alternatively, once around the shoulder of the peak, turn right in a SW direction and enjoy some great gentle terrain before having to cross over run 38a then passing a hut and onto a steeper section keeping to the right of a large gully.
The terrain here is a bit more varied and steeper so slightly more challenging.
At the bottom turn left and cross over a small bridge where the Seekopf chairlift is on the opposite side of the road. This run is best in early winter and mornings as it is prone to strong sun radiation.
