Analysing terrain data
2 - 3
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.
As mentioned with the SKY Chutes, this line has two options as well.
The only difference is that it sits closer to I-70 highway.
From Breckenridge Ski Area, you will down climb the rocks from the summit of Peak 5.
This route can be challenging and hard to navigate.
Be aware of the cross loading at the top of the line when entering.
The preferred way to access this line is from the bottom because of how long it takes to get to from Breckenridge.
It is also a fairly mellow skin from the bottom.
If you access from the bottom, you should be able to park by the Conoco gas station, and scout the best way to cross the Tenmile Creek.
