Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs…) 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.
If East Castle is open, it is well worth the hike to access these lines.
1st Chute is farthest skiers left.
You can rip this run in 5 turns or 50 turns -it's up to you.
East Castle is avalanche prone and hence rarely open.
Skiing this line is a treat.
