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

Not actually forbidden, just hidden and very steep and very technical.

Just past the elevator chute is a short sidestep through the gate.

Approach the edge with caution as the wind can build up a large cornice.

On the right side are very large cliffs and lots of trees, most skiers will want to bump down to the obvious short chutes.

Even where it looks more skiable there are often rocks just below the surface so it's worth going slow or straight lining and thinking light.
