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.
The 3 Bears Traverse is used to access the Northern most runs off the Bridger chair.
It runs along the tops of Baby, Mama, and Papa Bear, as well as heading around the corner to the bottom of The Apron.
It is easy, but watch out for the woopdee as it leaves North Bowl Road.
