Mandible VI 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 January and April. From a low point of 2.3 km to the maximum altitude of 2.5 km, the route covers 1 km, 0 vertical metres of ascent and 144 vertical metres of descent.


This is very similar to MIV and MV but is a little bit trickier due to it being surrounded by trees. It's still quite short but holds snow well due to the additional tree protection



Slopes become slightly steeper at around 25-30 degrees.
