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.
Kanzler's is also the second gate to the the Avalanche Gulch area.
It starts out with hop turns in a moderately wide chute, about 20ft, for maybe 50ft vertical.
It then opens up to 100ft wide for the rest of the run.
One of the best times to ski Kanzler's is in the spring, when it holds great corn snow.
It is also a great run early in the morning on a powder day in the first half of the season.
