Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) 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.
Parallel is the tighter of the pair of chutes, Diagonal and Parallel.
It always holds cold snow due to its North aspect.
Parallel can get a few bumps in the upper section from people making the same hop turns.
There are also some rocks in the top you will want to watch out for.
You'll either head left at the bottom to under Slushman's Ravine, fall line into rocky trees, or right to under Jaws 1.
Ski down the lift line or the face and head North after the first steep, rocky section.
You'll go a little past Diagonal, but before Jaws 1.
Parallel is about 10ft wide for the first 3 or 4 turns, then widens to about 20ft.
