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.

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.

Description

This short steep glade is worth it for those searching for untracked snow well after a storm.

Access this run through the most open slot through the trees on the SE side of Lizard's Back ridge.

Once through the trees, look for the most open section for turns.

This glade gets a bit steeper on the furthest left.

This is a short run and does not often get many tracks.

Compared with adjacent longer runs on either side, this run is a great place to find a few well-earned fresh tracks long after a storm.

Due to the lack of skier compaction, watch out for avalanches.

The run ends in mature timber.

Watch for tree wells.

Follow the gradient to the groomed outrun.
