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.
Wiggles is one of the more exposed runs at Bridger Bowl.
It can only be skied in higher snow levels after heavy, dense snowfall because there are lots of rocks, and the spines need to build up.
This is a South facing run, and gets affected accordingly.
Wiggles is very high consequence because of a huge cliff just to the east, or skier's left, which is always just feet away.
The pointer out the bottom has a few rocks to dodge, and runs into an off angled mogul run.
This is not a run to be taken lightly.
To ski Wiggles, you go through the Kanzler's gate and stay just left of Kanzler's Couloir.
You will find yourself on top of a narrow series of ledges.
Make your way down these, favoring the right sides for safety.
Once you reach the large pad at the end of the spines, take a deep breath because the scary part is over.
Now head just left over the pad, then make a hard right into the narrow chute.
Watch for rocks and the compression out the bottom.
Congratulations! You've made it down one of the hardest runs at Bridger!
