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.
With large gaps between pistes, the Pla de les Pedres area has great easy terrain conditions for off-piste cruising.
Dropping rightwards into the area just before the steep section of Serra de les Solanelles.
You will end up at the edge of the ridge and lots of lines can be taken down to the Pla de les Pedres chairlift.
The orientation and navigation is very easy; just follow the the chairlift line.
This is a great area for intermediate riders or adventurers looking for a long off-piste ride close to the slopes.
