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.

Description

Sentinel is a tree chute next to Hanging Meadow.

It has a good, long, consistent pitch that reaches roughly 40 degrees.

When the snow is good here, it is very fun.

However, the wind can have a drastic effect on this line because, as a chute, the trees are more open and offer less protection.

It is also a fairly avalanche prone area, so be careful if you choose to ski here.
