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.
Gers doesn’t open unless the snow is good and the ski patrol make sure it is as safe as it possibly can be.
Once you go in the drag lift is the only way out so as a general rule if the lift is not running, don’t go in! If it is open you can cut off to the left instead of following Jais the black piste.
Descend into the bowl here either (a) straight down or (b) by traversing high left and descending where looks best for fresh tracks! Be warned that even if it is open this is an exposed bowl and slides very often; don’t go unless you are 100% sure it is safe. Once further down you go through some shrubbery and then bear right and head to the bottom of the drag lift. Be warned this is a long, long drag, uncomfortable on skis and hell on a board!
