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.
Ski down China Bowl and past the top of Coyote.
This is the far skier’s left side of The Bear, lines become longer the further out you traverse.
There’s a number of different lines making their way down the fairly steep and stepped out terrain that makes The Bear so fun.
These coveted lines are a little tough to access, but are usually hit pretty early after a storm.
