Exposure

Exposure

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.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

Colter's is a great run on almost any day.

It has a nice, wide open upper section, then cruxes down for a couple hundred feet before opening up into the lower apron.

Head South past the Nose and Joe's from the Bridger hike.

Drop in from here all the way to the D Route gate.

This upper part can be kind of dicey around the rocks, best to stay away from them until very late in the year, or after a couple dense snow storms.

You will have a few hundred feet of good fall line skiing before it starts to narrow.

It cruxes down to about 15ft wide a t the tightest, but you can usually make nice consistent hop turns the whole way.

After the crux, it soon meets up with the run outs of Green Jeans and Nun's- look up to avoid anyone coming down from above.

The rest of the run is wide open turns on a large apron.

The upper and middle parts of Colter's will almost always have high quality snow but the apron can get sun affected, so ski accordingly.
