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

This route starts from the Mercury SuperChair.

You can ski this route when the Twin Chutes hiking access is open.

Start skinning from here and follow the Twin Chutes Hike until you reach the Backcountry Ski Gate.

From there if visible, follow the road over the East Ridge of Peak 9 until it flattens out, then follow the route to the base of the bowl on Peak 10.

From there, look for another road visible to the skiers left.

Follow the route/road to gain the ridge and summit Peak 10.

The line can be skied from the summit depending on the coverage.

This a great line that skis very well.

You can return the same way you came or ski back over the Twin Chutes Zone.
