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

This hike starts from where the Saddle Track meets Pete's Treat.

There is a gate to the left which leads up a ridgeline.

Up here is access to Hidden Valley and the top part of Sun Dance.

Its not always open as that aspect needs a lot of snow to make it skiable.

So listen to the advice of ski patrol.

It's a fairly easy hike, although it is an exposed ridgeline, so be careful with your footing.
