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.
More of a sector than a line, The Clairieres area is relatively straight forward ski from the mid-station of La Grave.
You can choose between North Easterly and more Easterly terrain, but due to the lower altitude and exposition it can heat up very quickly.
From the mid-station, you can ski parallel to the cables for a short while before picking up the main bowl, or head further skiers right straight from the lift.
Make sure you pick up the long traverse back to the lift through the forest or you'll be walking.
