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

Kanzler's is an awesome run that lies just before Tight Squeeze as you travel South from the Bridger hike.

You don't have to traverse out of this line, it takes you right to the High Traverse, just South of the gate.

It holds great snow most of the year due to the shade from all the trees.

The very top can be pretty rocky, especially early in the year.

This steep rock section needs at least a moderate base and dense snow to fill in.

There are a couple ways in during low tide, pretty much just skirting around and coming in just below these rocks from either side.

Heading South from the Bridger hike, drop in just left of Tight Squeeze.

Take the fall line approach, linking turns in wide spaced tree alleys.

Kanzler's will eventually open up into a wider gulley that takes you to the High Traverse directly above Cavanaugh's.
