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.
An open glade that offers a long, consistent run to Elizabeth Lake and an easy return to a groomed run.
Elizabeth Lake (Run) lies directly above Elizabeth Lake.
Not as steep as its neighbors, Elizabeth Lake offers a relatively easy route into Avalanche Basin.
The shallowest angles can be found to the skier's right, along the tree line.
The lines further to the left, with the narrowest opening steepen up quickly at the top.
The upper section of this run is mostly open with a nice fall line.
A few larger trees part way down force you right or left.
Navigate around these and back into the opening above the lake.
Exit around the left side of the lake onto Queens Run.
