Exposure

Exposure

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.

Description

Shop Chutes is a fun section of trees just above the warming hut.

A short skin from the parking lot will give you access to 400 feet of well pitched tree skiing.

The snow in here is well protected from the sun, but it can be effected by the wind.

When it is good, it is very good, but when the wind has gotten to it, Shop Chutes can be quite scoured despite the trees.
