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

Lower Coffey's is much like the Upper, with a smaller chute out the bottom.

Beware of sun affected snow, and thin cover.

Ski past King's, into Conehead's making precise hop turns through ledgy trees.

Fade to the right a couple hundred feet down and find a nice chute with a technical entrance.

It will be pretty thin and may be unsupportable around the rocks in this section- take it easy.

Once through the techy part, you can swoop down into the North side of the Z Fan.

Watch out for the heat vent around the rocks just before the South Bowl traverse.
