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.
One Time Only is a great first High Traverse run on a powder day.
It can get pretty skied out and bumpy, but the bumps usually stay chalky.
There are usually primo turns to be had before it rolls over and gets pretty rocky for a few feet.
The rocks only last for about 10ft, and you can usually just get light or find a quick way through.
Once through the rocks, one can either go skier's left to Lower Nose, or continue down the wider chute to your right for 500ft of fall line skiing.
