Exposure

Exposure

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.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

A long steep couloir that opens onto a face, Shaker's Right is off the beaten path.

Due to trees that shield it from sun and wind, this hidden chute/face often holds snow longer than its neighbor Niagaras.

Enjoy this 1200 vertical foot run that offers a little bit of everything for the expert.

The upper section starts out as a glade, but quickly steepens as it drops over a rock band.

Here, the run narrows to a couloir before opening again below this rock band.

Continue through rolling treed slopes to a steep face (known as Mike's Face) just above I-5.

Snowboarders might consider continuing down to the parking lot and taking the shuttle back to base.

Otherwise, enter the trees on the narrow I-5 Trail for a long traverse back to the base area.
