Exposure

Exposure

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.

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

Description

Very steep and tight tree skiing.

Because of the tight entrances people seem to pass these lines up, but if you are able to get in you are in for some of the best terrain around.

The north facing slots through trees hold awesome snow most of the time.

To find the chutes, ski the upper section of Gadzooks and half way down the first rollover pitch head for the trees on far skiers right.

The ABC chutes are the trees into the bowl underneath Gad 2.
