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

Drop into this area anywhere from the Royal Elk traverse line.

This wide swath of trees starts with a steep tree section that leads into a small powder field band.

Then you will intertwine through another tree band that will shortly open up to a much larger powder glade of epic proportions.

It may take you several runs to figure out your best line, but most will ski the center field from this approach that is filled with gorgeous rolling features, some boulder mounds, and huge ripping powder lines.

This will dump you out onto a cat trail which leads you back to Grouse.

I find people often collide at this intersection so slow down and be aware.
