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.
Great skiing through the "Moomin forest" so called from the small trees resembling those in the Moomins- a Swedish comic strip.
Continue East along the ridge from the Taillay lift and join the small col.
Traverse high to join the slopes directly beneath the Tetes des Etablons and follow the fall line into the Moomin trees.
Join the Planards-Carrefour blue run where you cross it.
Beware of avalanche danger from the steep ground under the Tete des Etablons.
