Exposure

Exposure

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.

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.

Description

Hiking around 150m towards the Peyrou d'Amont to the radio relay station gives access to yet another great north facing line from the mid-station.

Drop in straight from the ridge.

The skiing is above the tree line at first but you reach a beautiful larch forest which gets gradually thicker before you reach the Chancel traverse.

Be careful of wind slab formation.

As with the other lines from the mid-station the snow is often hard pack and can make the terrain feel much steeper.
