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.
This one is the classic off-piste down from top of Gaislachkogl to the bowl and then to the middle station.
It's not really a line because there are lots of different options if you want to go down this off-piste. The entry is in the same area, as for the “Wasserkar”; get out of the gondola on top of the mountain and follow the fence on the right side.
It will lead you to a yellow sign, on the outside of the circle-like curve of slope number 1.
There are different variations of the route going down here, but the best option is to drop in before you cross under the gondola cable. After leaving the regular slopes, ride the line you chose while you went up on the gondola.
From the gondola you will see everything you need to know for your line.
Some variations get better and more interesting with more snow.
Remember that in general, there are 3 big spines.
Depending on the wind and other circumstances, there can be some smaller ones on them.
Another important fact is that the lines on the far left are steeper, whereas on the right side they are mellower.
You can see everything from the gondola so just try to keep that image in your mind. If you ride down and make your way between the spines, the face opens up and the whole terrain becomes flatter.
Ride the pow and follow off-piste down to the pistes.
