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

Skull Bite is in an area that gets a lot of wind, so often the top is very rocky.

When the snow is good this can be a very fun line to ski fast because of its consistent pitch.

The abundance of rocks outcroppings and wind in this area can make it a prime place for a thin snowpack and avalanche activity, so be aware.
