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.

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.

Description

Pearly Gates is a good choice for a quick ridge lap, and can hold some really great snow.

Most people will overlook this run as they hike out for more vert.

It starts immediately South of the Bridger hike as an open mini bowl.

It narrows down in about 150ft to 15ft wide really quick, before opening up into a wide apron below.

Ski patrol skis this one often, but they will likely have the only tracks here.

There are great options for getting technical on both sides of the Pearly Gates as you reach the crux.
