Analysing terrain data
0 - 1
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.
This is one of the least popular freeride lines here and can be done only when snow conditions (read snowpack) are good enough.
You will need both a thick snowpack and opportune avalanche conditions because nobody will see you here in case of a slide.
Although this the run is easy it is recommended for intermediate to expert riders just because it's important to follow the right lines to avoid a walk on flat terrain and deep snow... Drop in from the black pistes at Cieloalto, staying leftwards and following the entry mapped here.
Then you go through varying terrain, both woods and open slopes, some steeper areas as well as some almost flat sections.
It's one of the best freerides here because it doesn't finish on an area served by lifts and this lack of convenience keeps people away!
