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.
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.
