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.

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.

Description

3 Bears Bowl is a great open smaller bowl.

It used to be skied a lot when the old Alpine chair unloaded at the top.

The South side gets bumped out frequently from people traversing North from Powder Park lift.

The North side of 3 Bears Bowl doesn't get hit that much and can really only be skied from the 3 Bears Traverse.

The North side can get sun affected, but can hold great powder early in the season.

The South side stays cool, but gets bumped out often.
