Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of 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): Certain death in the case of a fall.
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.
