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.
Another 'poubelle' couloir, so called because they were once upon a time used as the rubbish shoot.
Only for very experienced riders, this descent is a very serious, very steep and exposed line.
From the top of the Mont-Fort lift, climb to the summit and along the ridge.
There is a large east facing bowl which funnels in to the couloir.
Ski the narrow couloir and at the end join the rest of the classic Backside line.
