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.
Finger Chute #1 is the first in a series of chutes hidden in plain sight.
Just to the skiers right of Flyin Floyds and starting partway down that chute, Finger Chute #1 offers less "under the chair pressure" than its neighbor.
Dive into Flyin Floyds for a turn or two, then stay on the right rib and enter the trees.
Three chutes are hidden here.
This is the first one.
Watch for tight timber and downed trees guarding the entrance.
When filled in and open, this little chute offers 400 vertical feet of less-popular turns.
Hit Northway trail to the bottom of the lift for another lap on Northway.
