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

Cottom's Classic is an extreme double drop that hardly ever holds great snow.

It gets controlled often, and will probably be firm, smooth, wind board snow.

It never gets wind affected and doesn't get skied often during normal snow years.

Traverse, then hike South from the top of Schlasman's to just after the first up section.

You'll be able to look right down this bad boy.

Get onto the ledge above the pad and figure out how best to drop the 5 or 10ft easily.

There is usually no chance to scrub speed if you're going for the large air out, you'll just have to keep in control.

The second air can be 10-25ft depending on snow levels.

Regardless of size, you'll be going fast out the bottom where you probably won't find powder.

Keep it together as you ski down into Mundy's South.
