Grading system and symbols of the “ski itineraries”

A summary table highlights the most important aspects of each itinerary, while a short description summarizes the itinerary’s most important characteristics.

★    Indicates the main direction of the ascending and descending slopes during the itinerary

+    Total vertical height gain of ascent

-     Total vertical height gain of descent

∧     This indicates the gradient of the downhill slope referring to the steeper sections and their length. Eventual short sections are indicated as “sect”.

Ski:    Indicates the skiing difficulty downhill. See table difficulty descent

Alp:    Indicates the ascent’s difficulty in alpine terms and possible mountaineering passages throughout the descent. See table of alpine difficulty

Exp:    Shows the risk of falling (out of control) while descending, and the consequences that obstacles, cliffs etc present on the slope can cause.
