Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of 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): Certain death in the case of a fall.
There is a hidden tree run that in unmarked with no name off of Conclusion.
The reason for the name is at the entrance, the trees are fairly tight but then it opens up into a nice snowfield called “The Light”.
To access this location, you need to take the Snowdon Triple from the base or take Great Northern from the peak all the way down to Conclusion.
The Snowdon Triple is a long and extremely slow ride up.
So, prepare for that.
Exit the lift to the left and continue out of the unloading area.
Proceed through the top area which is flat and go straight to Mouse Run.
Take Mouse Run which is short to the end and cross over Great Northern.
Watch for heavy traffic to your right coming down on Great Northern.
Get on Great Northern and you will see where the Snowdon Triple is coming up.
Take an IMMEDIATE RIGHT.
Enter here and stay to the left under the lift past the old unloading zone.
Proceed straight until you cross over Racer’s Edge on skier’s left.
Go to the entrance of the trees at the corner and look for tracks from locals into the woods here since it is tricky to find.
The trees in the area are very tight.
You will come up on a big drop.
Proceed over it if you are confident you can land the jump and turn as soon as you land to avoid a collision with the trees in front of the landing area.
Otherwise, go around it to the right side.
You will dump out on Conclusion on the skier’s left side of the trail.
Only do this if you are a highly skilled jumper.
Perfect expert rating for people looking for a short tree run with a challenging jump and landing area without fear of going outside the resort boundaries.
