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.
Colorado Mines Peak is the easiest alpine skiing to access at Berthoud Pass.
Unfortunately, because of it's western aspect, it often has very little snow on it.
When there is good snow, however, Colorado Mines Peak can provide a very enjoyable, long and mellow alpine descent.
At the top you will find a lot of communication building for various institutions.
Feel free to look around but don't tamper with anything - you don't want to ruin access to the pass for others!
