Analysing terrain data
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.
Fun and playful North facing 30-40 degree shots with trees and cliffs that lead to the bottom of Rocky Point where you can find an easy ascent back to Catherine's area.
This face usually holds good snow.
Skiing Sunset peak to Rocky Point is a great link up.
Sunset has some steep aspects that are known to slide and it is littered with rocks and trees.
Although adjacent, the slopes off of Sunset are not the same as in Rocky Point - a green light in one does not indicate a green light in the other.
