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

The Glide Plane is a consistent pitch wide open shot just to the North of Mitchell's and skier's left out the bottom of Bridger Gully.

It doesn't see much sun, and only sees a little traffic.

There is only one thing wrong with the Glide Plane.

It slides slowly throughout the season, hence the name.

You can still ski this easily just don't fall into the crack.

At the the bottom of Bridger Gully, head left through the trees past Mitchell's.

Turn right and get through the rocks at the top, then skiing around the glide crack into the wide open slopes of 3 Bears Bowl.
