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.
From the entrance of Bushrat, drop over the skiers right of the shoulder and into the narrower chute which follows under the main Bushrat line.
This line also takes an obvious diagonal left route that is often less skied than Bushrat itself.
The snow remains good here even a few days after a snowfall.
Early in the season there are often rocks here which are still exposed.
Be careful of traverse lines as you exit and avalanche/cornice debris in the bowl of Couloir Extreme after.
