Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) 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.
To access this trail take Green Cabin and turn left into the woods when you reach the picnic table about half way down from Gwyn's High Alpine.
It's a favorite to many people.
It's a natural half pipe through the woods hidden out of view.
Kids and adults alike love it.
It's a blast skiing up the sides of the natural half pipe and getting some air off the small bumps and natural features.
This is a great introduction to half pipe skiing.
