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

K9 Chute is a long, uninterrupted chute that starts right off the top of the chair to the South.

It gets hit pretty hard, but can have some great bumps.

On a sunny corn day, K9 is awesome.

It will soften up early and stay great most of the day.

K9 doesn't get all sluffed out on a powder day, because it isn't that steep.

There are a few trees to avoid, but other than that, it's open skiing in a subtle gully.

Be sure to fade a little right towards Golden Triangle at the bottom, there are large cliffs fall line of the bottom of K9.
