Analysing terrain data
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.
Keith's is one of the best short laps you can do just South of the Bridger boot pack.
It has less trees than Kanzler's, and doesn't see as much traffic as Sluicebox.
It is a very easy run for first timers and those looking for quick guaranteed powder.
Keith's hardly ever gets sunbaked, with the exception of some of the rocky outcrops at the very top of the line.
Head South from the top of the Bridger hike, past Sluice, til you see a moderately wide entry above a long tree chute.
Drop in and enjoy the fall line turns.
Near the bottom the trees close in for just a moment before spitting you out in the meadow above the top of the Bridger chair.
