Analysing terrain data
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.
The most direct route home - quite steep and often very mogulled.
From the mid-station, follow the line of the cable car pylons.
Just after crossing the traverse line from Chancel head skiers right (away from the pylons) to avoid some steep drops.
Continue down to P1 or all the way to La Grave.
Whilst this is one of La Grave's less wild runs, it is still steep and when icy, an encounter with a pylon could be ugly.
