Exposure

Exposure

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.

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

Description

This line is the rock buttress between Morning Glory and Z.

It is often thought about, but very rarely skied.

Lost Shot Notch used to be labeled "Do Not Ski" on old D Route Maps- for good reason.

It is one of the gnarliest areas at Bridger Bowl.

Pretty much, don't go.

You shouldn't even think about this area until you've studied it extensively from above, around, and below.

Seriously, BEWARE! It isn't skiable most years, but can be skied during a record snow year or post season.

When you do feel like you can get into it, you won't need an explanation of the line.

Do Not Ski.
