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.

As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

This line has a lovely open pitch which invites you in.

But you need to be sure there is enough snow at the bottom section to enjoy the rest of it.

Follow the Pierre a Ric piste a couple of hundred metres down from Lognan and look for the entrance on the L as the trees open out.

The lovely wide initial slopes soon close down to a twisting snow-filled stream bed which can be really fun to ski, putting you back on the piste about half way down.

If you are uncertain about the snow cover for this then ski the whole Pierre a Ric piste first, looking up to your left just after it steepens up, below the huge boulder on the R of the piste.

You should get a fair idea of how good it is going to be this way.
