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.

High Exposure (E3)In case of a fall, death is highly likely.


Sunrise Traverse is a very exposed traverse from the Big Bang entrance to Couloir Extreme allowing access to Sunrise Chute and Upper Feather Trees.

It crosses above a large cliff band which can fill in fairly wide depending on the snow year.

Nonetheless, this is a No Fall Zone.
