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.
A short steep rollover that ends in thick trees, Paul's Face is named for the ski patrol director that was caught in an avalanche there.
Access this later in the season once this terrain pod is open.
What starts as a shallow glade quickly steepens over a rocky outcropping.
Due to a lack of frequent skier compaction, this area is avalanche prone.
Ski or ride with a partner.
