Analysing terrain data
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.
Blast through some tight trees after exiting Upper Broadway, and you will see one of the few signs on this side of the mountain, confirming that you have ended up in West Broadway.
The nice thing about West Broadway is the old growth trees that are placed very far apart, and terrain that just gets steeper and sweeter as you pass through it.
Stay right in the fall line and get ready to enjoy some of the best powder turns Breckenridge has to offer.
Be on your toes for the long flat run out that runs next to the creek.
It is not to challenging, but one wrong step and you can easily slip and get wet.
