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.
This run can be accessed from the top of Chair 6 either by taking the front traverse to OO Left or by following the Powder Bowl ridge until you reach the opening in the trees, then proceeding towards Chair 6.
The upper portion of this run is wide and fairly gentle.
Watch for small alpine firs.
Faith's Left includes Faith's Slide as well as all the terrain to the Bear Pits rope.
Faith's Slide is the long, fall line opening in the trees between the rocky buttress that forms Rabbit Ears and the thicker glades to the left.
About halfway down, the run narrows.
Watch for rocks on the right side.
Below this fairly wide funnel, the run opens into well-spaced trees that shelter the snow.
Faith's Slide is named for a ski patroller, Faith Clark, who was injured in an avalanche here while doing avalanche control.
Faith's Slide ends at Downhill.
