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.

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.

Description

From the top of Bachelor Gulch, find the snowshoe trail behind the outhouse and hike that out 500 ft till it takes you up a slight incline to the picnic spot for lovers and stoners.

Take in the beautiful view and digest for a bit.

If you plan on eating at the Alpine Club Yurt in Arrowhead, ski down this beautiful low angle Aspen glade run through the obvious open tree channels.

Be sure not to drop off the sunny ridge as you may descend below the Yurt.

From the Yurt, traverse hard right (take the cat trail) to get back to Pow Wow.
