Exposure

Exposure

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.

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

Description

A shorty but a goodie, Elevator chute is a short, steep straight line through aesthetic rocks and will spit you out into the open Cirque below.

The best access is to stay high on the Cirque traverse - if you take the lower traverse you will ski right past it unless you sidestep up to the cirques rim.

Elevator is easily recognizable by the rope hanging over the chute to help with avalanche control.

Tip over the edge and straight line through the rocks into the wider part of the chute.

This is not the time to try and slow down, take it to the bottom where it is much easier to slow down and stop.
