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

Papa Bear is the easiest way out of the Bears area.

Early season there can be a couple small drops through the gut, but there are usually ways around these to either side.

After a couple storms, Papa Bear becomes a ski through line.

It stays out of the sun for most of the year, but sees a moderate amount of traffic, especially off the Goldilocks traverse.

There are a few nice ways down the North and South flanks of Papa where you can link a couple small drops and find preserved powder.

You'll run out into the 3 Bears Bowl.

Head fall line through Bridger Gully or out the Goldilocks traverse around the corner to the third large open area to access this zone.
