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.
Just right of Redtail, off-piste riders can find a section of Aspen trees that descend in a rolling manner.
Traverse high to reach the far right line that can take you through some wood and gully obstacles.
It is recommended you ski this with fresh snow (8” or more) as the face is usually sun-baked and can make you ski and look bad.
But the exploration can offer a little more adventure to the typical RedTail run.
