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

The route starts with a long traverse around or below Stadler See- you can go as far as you want on that traverse.

Skins for skis or splitboard with skins are recommended.

The skin will take between 30 to 60 minutes depending where you want to start.

Snowshoes can be another option for snowboarders but definitely it will take longer.

The beginning is exposed to the West face of Jatzhorn but soon opens up to a wide area towards Tällifurgga peak. Once at the top, face towards Teufi valley.

At the beginning you have a dangerous bowl to drop in first.

A good way to sort this out is ride it on top of the right ridge to get to the pass below.

If you stick to the right there are some steep lines you could ride as well.

Once this sorted the way down is pretty easy to follow there is a big ridge on your left coming up from the peak just follow its direction, which will go slightly to your right.

It is a long ride down on good rolling terrain.

Once you see the tree line you have two choices- there is a creek on your right just after the big right ridge ends which will lead you far down on Teufi Valley, but safely.

The other option is ride down the creek just in front or ride the forest if there is good snow cover.

Once at the bottom there are some farms and a bridge to cross the stream just below.

Go back to Teufi Restaurant following the road to get the bus back to the Village.
