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.
Named because it's east-facing, Sunrise is a steep little chute off West Ridge which skis into Doom and Gloom.
There's not much space for turning when you're in there and although it does fan slightly as you exit, you'll be coming down with a fair bit of speed! Just a point and go from the top really.
It's the first chute on the right as you head along West Ridge towards Elevator, Escalator and Frog Hollow.
