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.

Description

On exiting the Triftji T-bar or Rote Nase cable car, this run is the main face, opposite the Sunnegga/Rothorn mountain.

The convex slope is steep at the top, meaning amazing fresh powder turns if the snow allows.

This is followed by an open, rolling section, with a couple of small cliffs/rocks half way down to jump off or avoind, depending on your preference.

It is a very open mountain section which allows you to choose a variety of lines, all taking you down towards the Stockhorn button lift.
