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.
Cloud Nine is basically the wide area in the middle of the saddle.
There are endless options in here for ripping around.
The top section is a little steep but is very wide.
It then flattens out before dropping down again and this part has many cliffs to jump off and a lot of features for playing around.
The whole area does get choppy very easily and it doesn't get filled in with snow like the gullies do, but it's still a lot of fun and there is an endless amount of things to do here on a powder day
