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.
Cascade used to be marked on the map, but often lacks good snow depth to be open.
IF the ropes are open and the snow deep enough Cascade is a fantastic steeper run that descends under the Mountaineer Express lift, staying left toward the hotel.
Follow the fall line and watch for ropes which will funnel you under a bridge and onto Deer Hollow.The run is mostly northwest facing and in the colder weeks preserves the snowpack well.
Due to it not often being open, moguls typically do not form.
