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.
East Facing shots down to Emigrant Lake.
From Chair 15, follow the boundary line of Fawn Ridge and then beyond the boundary, descend down one of the many short chutes above Emigrant Lake.
Being directly East facing, the snow can be extremely variable.
After descending a chute, you will encounter a traverse line that heads to the left and back to the resort.
