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.

As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

Approach the same way as Crystal Dark, just keep going! Be aware that, unlike Crystal Dark, this is unsecured off-piste, so you must be responsible for your decision-making out here.

A climbing traverse can take you above a couple of rock outcrops to give you a longer top section.

This zone is stacked with fun, rolling pitches through widely-spaced trees. Depending on how far out you go, you'll eventually rejoin the Creux de Formeïan red piste a little further down (than where you'd rejoin it via Crystal Dark), or the Plan Bois blue piste near the base of the resort.

The bushes in the lower part of the forest can be thick, so be prepared for some good old-fashioned bush-whacking!
