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.
The Burn is a unique area at Bridger Bowl.
It is a steep treed area that got burned out a few years ago.
This area was hard to ski before the fire opened it up.
It will hold good snow even late in the year, and is a great place to take photos.
Early in the season you will want to ski carefully due to the abundance of stumps and snags that are in this area.
To get here, start skiing either Keith's or Kanzler's, head towards the other chute after about halfway, you will start to see burned trees.
