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

There are a few interesting lines in this area, all of them for expert riders, from narrow lines between rocks to really steep sections.

They are not very long but long enough to need to be aware of snow conditions.

They offer a good opportunity to get to steep terrain from a chairlift.

These lines are visible from the slopes if you want to scope them out before you drop in.
