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.
This route has easy access from the lifts and an aesthetic line line with good skiing at a pleasant gradient.
Avoid on spring / hot afternoons due to avalanche risk.
From the top of the chair, stay right of the Marmottons piste and choose your line down one of the gullies.
Traverse back left when the terrain steepens for the safest route.
