Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of 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): Certain death in the case of a fall.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

Follow the Royal Elk traverse over to the out-of-bounds line.

Ski down along this line between tight trees until you see a channel open to the right.

Follow this through some fresh sidecountry, it will lead you right towards center.

For something different, try cutting left after a while and find a powder glade with usually more snow and fresh terrain.

This will dump you out onto a cat trail which leads you back to Grouse.

People often collide at this intersection so slow down and be aware.
