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 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.
