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.

Medium Exposure (E2)As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

Description

The 10 Little Indians are rarely skied.

For much of the season they are guarded by large cornices at the top.

Even if those cornices collapse in the spring, the snow can be so rough - due to the southern aspect - that this area is often not worth the effort.

However, in the RARE instance that a cornice is not blocking the entrance and the snow conditions are favorable (both avalanche danger and quality), these can be very fun.

Although they are short, these chutes are steep and aesthetic.

Be VERY patient and wait for the right conditions if you have ambitions to ski the 10 Little Indians.
