Yeah, what is the lesson taught here? ....dont under estimate the slope you are skiing, dont over estimate your own abilities, play it safe on the top of a steep hill, dont wear slippery pants and jacket, use back protection, ski with friends, learn how to slef arrest and never ever get up on your feet and try to run down the hill
The slope is about 45deg but clearly steaper further up. Its a ski route so it doesent have any colour code. Here on this video: http://media.putfile.com/Verbier_2004_4
of me skiing the same hill 7y later you can see that its very steep and that its a long kiss goodnight if you crash.... like rastafa.
