Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) 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.
Drop in to Avy 2 (the middle one) and keep skier’s left as you make your way down the bowl.
The chute begins quite a way up the slope and is easy to miss, or hard to avoid, depending on your goals.
A steep, narrow chute with a few chokes takes you to a large cliff that can be hit from the end or pre-ollied from the gut (not as fun in the air, but matches up with the landing better).
One of the more technical lines on the mountain as it requires a number of precise, tight turns, sluff management and the ability to stomp a large air at the bottom.
The landing is front and center of chair 16 so any attempt at this beast of a line is usually rewarded with the appropriate applause.
Faces NNW and is in the shade until later in the day or later in the season.
