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.
There is a clearing in the trees that is filled with boulders.
It makes for the perfect pillow zone.
The skiers right offers lower angle pillows to play on.
The left has some steep short lines.
It works best when the freezing levels are at valley bottom and there is good snow at the top of the Gondola.
