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.
After 2000ft you can descend through the glades that may be intermixed with rock bands.
If you drop in too soon before this, you will encounter cliffs on a NW facing slope, so scout and take caution! Just past the ledges you will find steep long glade runs in the dense woods.
