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.
Just like the S Chute you can access this line two different ways; Breckenridge Ski Area or Copper Mountain Parking Lot.
Breckenridge Ski Area: Right after you enter the backcountry gate for Peak 5, you will follow the route to access this line.
You have two options when down climbing and they are skier's left line or the skier's right line.
Please understand when down climbing the rocks, there is no set route, and it can be time consuming.
Also be aware of the cross loading at the top of each line when entering them as well.
Once you enter either line, enjoy the long ride down to the bottom.
When you reach the bottom, you will stay to your skier's right to exit.
Follow the route to cross the bridge and back to the parking lot.
If you are taking the bus, the station will be at the entrance of Copper Mountain Ski Area.
which is South towards I-70 Highway.
