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.
The 1st Finger is the widest and shortest of the Fingers, but can have the best snow.
Not many people ski the 1st because it's only about 150ft long.
It's not that steep, and is a great first hike for a kid.
The snow will stay good days after a storm and doesn't get sluffed out.
Hike up from the top of Pierre's or come from Job 1 or Boundary Chute.
