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 steep glade with a narrow chute, Sure Shot is so named because it frequently avalanches.
Follow Kookie Ridge past Rinky Dink.
Look for the narrow entrance just before the ridge flattens out.
In certain snow conditions, straightlining though the trees might be required.
