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

The Teton Traverse is an option for those wanting easy powder turns after Mad Man's has been skied out.

It gets you into the wide open apron just to the North, where Sometimes/ Lewis and Clark/ Cuckoo's come down.

It is pretty exposed as it traverses over Prince of Darkness, so you must be comfortable with a little bit of exposure.

This traverse hardly ever sees the sun, so it will be in good condition.

Get to the entrance of Mad Man's and look down and left, you will see the snow field at the base of a large rock wall, this is where the traverse is.

You only have about 80ft of exposure below you as you travel North, and soon you will be on the apron and ready to shred down to the North Bowl Road.
