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.
Mama Bear is an awesome area with steep, gnarly rock outcrops and trees.
It is sheltered from the sun, but gets hit pretty hard on a powder day.
This is where the Papa, Mama, and Baby Bear cliffs are.
These airs can be taken huge to the flats, or smaller to a nice steep bushy transition.
Early in the season, it can be kind of difficult to slide through even the easiest section of Mama Bear.
At the bottom, you'll run into the 3 Bears Bowl.
Ski down Steamroller to the fall line through the trees or go out the Goldilocks traverse around the corner to the second open area.
