Analysing terrain data
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.
Hell's Half Acre, much like Hoop Creek, is perfect for the person who wants to get a quick lap in on the pass, because it requires no hiking.
From the parking lot at the top of the pass go due north and you will be at the top of Hell's Half Acre.
The zone has some larger openings in the trees, and you can often find kickers in several different parts of it.
It ends directly at a road switchback on the north side of the pass.
