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.
From the top entrance, ski off the ridge line into the bowl that rewards those who travel this far with unsurpassed beauty and fresh tracks.
The gradient is more mild and safer than the lower section.
It is recommended you ski into the gully and find some protection in the trees below from potential slides.
This face will eventually dump you onto the cat trail that leads you back to Grouse.
But traverse right at the bottom.
