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.

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.

Description

A short hike to a beautiful summit and then some good skiing straight back to the lift system.

There are plenty of steeper and more serious lines to choose from the summit of the Aiguille Grive but this is a relatively straight forward and accessible ski.

From the top of the Transarc 2, Plagnettes or Arcabulle hike the ridge to the top of the Aiguille Grive.

After enjoying a moment of alpine tranquility in the sprawling Paradiski and taking in the breathtaking view, drop in on the west face and staying skiers right and joining the obvious ridge and then shoulder.

Follow the shoulder down a way before dropping skiers right down to join the Foret piste and or top of the Grizzly chair.

There is plenty of space to choose your line and play with the steepness of the final pitch.
