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.

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.

Description

Starting from the Glacier Bowl Express chairlift (formerly known as "Chair 6") this is an easy access steep freeride line which should be on the ticklist of any keen, adventurous skier. Ski down from the top of the Glacier Bowl Express chairlift straight into the line and enter the 45 degree chute.

The line is about 40 feet wide but narrows in places to 15 feet before opening up again lower down.

Once out of the main couloir you can go left or right.

Both options offer some fun tree skiing and the occasional little cliff drop too.

Eventually you will join up with the "Autobahn" run, which you follow to the foot of the Aerial Tram.
