Exposure

Exposure

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.

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.

Description

If you're looking for something a little more interesting than a steep groomer or a mogul field for your last 100 metres down to Harmony Chair, look no further than the Boot Chutes, which offers gladed skiing which starts open and slowly filters tighter towards the bottom (and left).

Because of the trees, the snow can often be good in here but with lots of traffic the chutes can end up skiing like a bike trail with bumps and burms (which is also very fun! ) Traversing left from the top of Lower McConkeys is your best way in, and the chutes spit you out further down, with only 30 metres of bumps left to take on before returning to Harmony 6.
