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.
Faced with the general public's enthusiasm for this activity, Peyragudes is creating this year a marked and free ski touring itinerary.
From the Privilege car park in Peyresourde, "La Crête d'Aube", also open to snowshoe walkers, allows you to reach the high altitude restaurant Le Cabanou over 300 metres of altitude difference.
Enough to fully satisfy the enthusiasts of this booming activity.<br/><br/>For more information: <a href="https://skitouring.decathlon.fr" target="_blank">skitouring.decathlon.fr</a>
