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.
When skiing down the black Corblanches piste you have to keep to a cat track width path at the top.
When it opens up keep skiers right on the side of the piste and head towards the trees. The trees narrow and if you keep heading right there is an open slope – you can look across a lake towards the Airon lift to your right.
There a number of points you can access this slope but don’t go in too high as there are rock bands – the lower you go the less risky it is.
Head down the short but open slope and then head left and back through the trees to the bottom of Oasis drag lift.
