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

At the top of Furka Tbar turn right and hike the S ridge of Parsennfurgga (2443m).

The ridge goes progressively to a plateau and then gets steep with a rocky area on your left.

Stay on the ridge, watch out for cornices on the right side till you get to the top.

Once there you have a very smooth slope on your right or you can keep walking on the ridge and ride some of the steep colouirs on the eastern area of the ridge.

From there you will merge to the lower Furka freeride area. Watch out for windslab on the western side of the slopes.
