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 Kiwi Chutes are 3 narrow, South facing chutes that break off from Close Call then drain back into it.

They don't get skied too often, but all run out onto a traverse, so be careful.

They can get sluffed out by control.

You can hop turn them most of the season, but may have to point it in the early months.

They are only about 100ft long, and you can see them easily from the Schlasman's chair.

Ski down Close Call and head left after the end of the rock wall, you'll be traversing across the tops of the Kiwi Chutes, and can see directly down them.
