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.
This line is almost better to look at than to actually ski.
It is rarely open and rarely has enough snow to make it worth your while.
It is the obvious couloir that extends above the Castle Apron starting from the top saddle of the Devil's Castle.
The line is very steep, technical and usually quite complex - look to this line for an incredible challenge and likely suffer fest.
This line only fills in during big snow years and usually has a cornice on top.
It is for experts only - it is obvious why when you see it.
