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.
4th finger is a great place to find cold snow days after a storm.
It gets skied often, but never sees the sun.
It can get pretty hacked out in the crux, but you will be able to find smooth turns afterwards.
It can get buffed out when the wind it right.
It also gets sluffed out by patrol on powder days.
Hike above the Pierre's chair to the rope line and look North.
You can also get here by skiing either Job 1 or Boundary Chute, and heading into the trees between these runs, which will run into the Fingers area.
The crux is pretty tight most of the year, but will be super tight and rock early on.
Make you way down it, then enjoy your wide open turns down to the South Bowl road.
There are a couple gnarly options near the bottom, the Pinky Finger on the left, or a angled rock band on the right.
