Schneebedeckter Hang mit eingezeichneten Hangneigungen

On map.geo.admin.ch it is possible to visualize slope classes of slopes greater than 30° all over Switzerland. The data is derived from the high precision digital height model swissALTI3D. An average slope is calculated on each 10m x 10m square and shown in different colours depending on the slope. This information is highly relevant for analyzing dangers in relation to avalanches.

The following map shows the region of Bec des Rosses where the last stage of the Freeride World Tour, Xtreme de Verbier takes place (23.31.3.2019).
Since 1996 professional freeriders ski down the steep north face, that has an average slope of 50° with certain areas of over 60°.
