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.

As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

If you want to maximise your fresh tracks after a snowfall then it makes sense to start somewhere that gets tracked out quickly.

This line is basically underneath the chairlift so doesn't take much finding and as a result gets tracked out impressively fast.

You can still get at least 4 or 5 rotations in though if you're there first thing.

There are all sorts of natural kickers and windlips on the face to play around with and even a small rock to jump near the top (not compulsory as there are ways around it).

Given the aspect of this face (northeast) it holds cold snow well for most of the winter and is really enjoyable to ski even when it isn't in fresh snow.

The wind can, however, get into it pretty badly if it's from the north and the ridges can be a bit rocky so go carefully.
