The specific routes have also been categorized according to the level of difficulty.
Those in red color are more demanding slopes, and require more experience, while those in blue color are considered more accessible to all riders.
We use the inclinometer on the slopes as it is necessary to know exactly the inclination on the slope we move on and make the decision whether we will continue on that slope or not.
The activation of an avalanche depends on the slope, and inclination and an avalanche can potentially be activated on slopes with an inclination of 30 - 60 degrees and especially on the slopes with 30 - 45 degrees.
