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.
Test Face is a nice steep run that gets skied often it is a North facing shot that will always hold great snow.
Early on a powder morning, this is a great bet for some awesome turns.
From the mid traverse in the High Traverse, just after the bottom of exit chute, ski fall line or just a little skier's right through one of many tree chutes that are about 100ft long.
These will open up onto Test Face, and a few steep turns can be had.
The skier's right side is steeper and longer, while on the left, there is a great rock to pop off of.
Test face then becomes more of a shoulder above avalanche gulch, flattening out as you ski left towards the gulch, or right to the bottom of the Whirlpools.
