Analysing terrain data
3 - 4
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.
From Capolago (Maloia), go up the Plan di Zoch trying to avoid the steepest stretches.
After ~650 meters in the north-west direction you will reach Lunghin Lake, nestled in the homonymous valley from which you can admire the massifs of Val di Mello and Engadine
