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

Take Chair 4 to Chair 15 and then hike up Covered Wagon Peak.

From here you can go to either side of Covered Wagon Peak and follow the ridge in the southeast direction that leads to peak with a radio tower.

You can ski tour or sidestep to boot-pack.

That peak is Mellisa Coray Peak.

From there, follow the main ridge to the most prominent peak, Peak 9795.A pretty consistent north facing pitch from the top of Peak 9795 that funnels into two narrow chutes as you descend.

The snow is generally good in here but also a but wind-affected on the upper section.

Route finding is a bit tough as it’s a blind rollover.

Best is to stay a bit skier's right until the line fully comes into view.

There’s an alternate pencil chute on the upper skiers right section and usually pretty narrow but wide enough for jump turns.

The run opens up below if you do carry speed on the exit.

Just make sure you stay more skier's right.
