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 snow transforms rapidly on the sunny side of the Mont Gele so you have to be quick to enjoy fresh snow here.
But you can often find good spring conditions here in the early afternoon too.
Descend and follow the direct line from the lift station down the south face.
Follow the variable but interesting terrain down to join the pistes down to La Chaux.
