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.
Another route within Smoked Salmon which loses a little vertical from a small traverse but often has snow left when Smoked Salmon is tracked out.
Cut skiers right about 30-40 metres down Smoked Salmon, through the trees and under a cliff.
This will open up to a little open meadow.
Continue through a few more trees at the end and you will be dropped out onto Blue Line.
Be careful not to cut right too quickly otherwise you'll end up on top of the aforementioned cliff!
