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.
This is a fantastic run for less experienced off piste skiers with a sense of adventure.
It never gets very steep and faces northeast so stays cold resulting in generally good snow quality.
In fact, it used to be a black run back when there was a chairlift to the summit above but it was more intimidating as a mogulfield than as a powderfield.
To get there requires a short hike from the top of the Vallons or Cucumelle chairlifts.
Walk south along the ridge for a few minutes.
At the high point, put your skis back on and continue down the ridge.
You can drop into the face anywhere you like then stay off piste until you feel it’s time to rejoin the Cucumelle red piste.
