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

Access Windows #3 either from the chair E gate, or by hiking up the peak 9 access road about 500 yards the Mercury Superchair.

If entering in below at chair E, expect a long traverse out, to a very steep chute that starts wide open, then gets very tight, and finally spits you out into the run out.

If accessing Windows #3 from the peak 9 access road hike, there will be 2-3 clearly seen chutes that the skier can choose from.

All of these chutes will be wide open for 100-200 meters, then get tight and drop off into the run out.

Two things to look out for while skiing out of Windows #3, are low hanging branches at about head level, and stumps in the run out track itself.

There will be multiple tracks out, so stay high and right so you can navigate the run out more slowly.
