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.
Steep rocky chutes that drop South from the Baldy boot pack.
Peer down them next to the CLOSED sign while hiking toward Baldy.
Every once in a while, Snowbird will open these chutes and they are very fun to ski in the right conditions.
Because they are south facing, they can often have poor snow conditions.
