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.
From the top of Gron chairlift it is possible to ski the trees that are directly ahead of you as you come of the chair. You need good snow cover and they are tight so you need to be confident skiing trees; ski the gaps! Be careful as there are a couple of tracks that cross the line here and can sometimes give a sizeable drop onto them! Keep heading down and then you’ll hit the Blanchot piste – turn left, be careful of beginners and intermediates on this piste as you join it.
Don’t be tempted to go further than this – unless you want to end up in a valley with a small river to cross and then climb out of it!
