A good off-piste link from Tignes to Val d'Isere although the snow suffers due to the sunny aspect of the slope.

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

Leave the Cretes piste and head right in to the bowl just skiers left of the chair line.

Cross the Violettes piste and continue down the open slopes keeping close to the chair line, with it always on your right.

When you reach the drainage line a little under halfway down the chair, follow this and then track back right to join the bottom of the lift.
