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

Fourth Virtue is the most extreme of the four.

What it lacks in terms of exposure, it makes up in steepness and tightness.

You probably won't be able to get more than a slight hip wiggle while skiing this 150ft pointer.

The run out remains steep, so you'll probably be going way too fast as you try to get it together sometime before the bottom of the Apron.

It will hold great snow all year, and doesn't get skied too often.

Just be ready to be going wicked fast.

Ski just a few feet past the top of the Third to get to the top of the Fourth.
