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

This is a lovely ski, off the beaten track but relatively unserious as you are never far from the piste.

Follow the Bochard piste just past the point where it splits into two then rejoins to one piste, then traverse L through a few rocks if it is early or lean season, crossing an old moraine ridge, to enter the enclosed wide couloir, bordered by the rocky ridge to its L.

Follow this down at a lovely angle, straight down the fall line to the Marmottons piste.

Because of the ridge to its L the run is usually shaded so the snow is normally excellent.
