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

Mitchell's is a relatively steep area that drains you out the bottom of Bridger Gully on the North side.

It can get some sun later in the year, can be a little rocky early, and sees a decent amount of traffic.

Head skier's left near the bottom of Bridger Gully.

You'll be on a shoulder that rolls off with spaced bushes.

Fall line will take you gently to the right, back to Papa Bear.

If you resist, and trend left, there is an awesome medium sized air- Gaffney's.

Gaffney's cliff is usually 10-20ft, although you could send it much large as the run out is wide open.

The Goldilocks traverse is down about 75 feet from Gaffney's.
