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.

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.

Description

To access this run park at the White Pine trailhead and head across the bridge to the trail.

The trail cuts right across the base of the run so you can look up it and scope your exit.

Continue following the trail up into the White Pine Drainage through the switchbacks.

Once the trail flattens back out you can cut left into the trees and work your way to the top of the run by staying on the ridge.
