Exposure

Exposure

The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) but only the consequences of the skier 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): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.

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

Description

Hike farther out, 3000-4000ft, past the cliff band and you will find a safer tree glade with a more mild pitch.

You have gone to far if you ski under the “Bald Spot” dome.

In considerable Avy conditions, this section can pose a runoff threat for those riding in the apron.

Descend through more mild and open trees down to the gully.

Be prepared for a long gully wash runout that may be more dangerous than the run itself.
