Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) 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.
Following piste 1 from Plattjen lift station towards lift line, you will ski right under the cables at one point.
At this point follow the cables downhill.
The first section until you reach the crossing with the blue path is relatively open and able to pick several lines for your group.
A few rock drops here if you so wish, the only real time you need to be careful is when you approach the blue path for the first time.
There are some nice drops to get you to a hard packed path so pick a nice line.
From the blue path take a nice little breather, the next section is incredible! You will stand on the edge of the path and see a field of boulders and rocks all capped with nice fluffy snow (hopefully).
Theres no particular line to be advised.
Just navigate yourself down keeping roughly under the lift line and enjoy the pillows.
From the second blue path, you can take the path back to the lift station to go again.
Or if the snow looks right and enough cover the keep following the cables right down to the station.
This line is not always available but if you're lucky to have the snow conditions just right, you'll be a fool to miss this one out.
