Mandible V Map

This is a popular freeride skiing route which is generally considered to be moderate. It's extremely remote, it features low exposure (e1) and is typically done between December and April. From a low point of 2.3 km to the maximum altitude of 2.5 km, the route covers 954 m, 0 vertical metres of ascent and 144 vertical metres of descent.


This is even easier than MIV because it doesn't feature the tight trees that Mandibles IV has at the bottom and it's slightly less steep. Still a very fun alpine run



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
