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.
Outer LImits traverse is a great way to ski the powder in the apron below Northwest Direct and not have to get gnarly.
It starts at the dogleg of Hidden, about 400ft down from the top.
Take the traverse to the North from the first snow ledge you see after rock faces.
Be careful as you traverse here, you are above a couple very gnarly chutes.
Outer Limits is only about 150ft long, and soon you'll be into the bottom of Northwest, skiing smooth open pow.
