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

There are multiple line choices in here; best explored by going progressively further each run.

The main things to be aware of are early season snow, where obstacles can be obscured.

Best wait for it to fill in a bit at this point.

Once there's a tasty covering, dip in, and carry a little speed, as some of the routes are let's say skier friendly.

If you're boarding, follow some skiers, and have them break trail for you.

Do watch out for the natural gully that cuts across these trees; it can suck you in; the bushes grow there, bow over and create bubbles of snow that you can sink down into, requiring a struggle to get out of.

Cut skiers right back out onto either Lower Bashful, West Bowl Express before the cat track, or skiers left onto Pyramid.

Either will take you back out towards the West Bowl chairs.
