Exposure

Exposure

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.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

The first smaller chute that you come to when traversing into the Spiney Chute area.

This chute goes through clean but can be peppered with rocks and trees - take caution when the snowpack is thin.

The run out connects with the popular Sidewinder run so pay attention to skier traffic if exiting the chute with speed.

Make sure that you scope the Spiney Chute area before you drop in, some of the lines DO NOT go through.
