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.
The ancestral name of these two chutes is Omas and Opas (German for grandmother and grandfather), but mostly these names are no longer used.
Today these two chutes are referred to as The Twins.
Neither of these chutes are straightforward.
The righthand chute is bordered by some boulders that you must air off of to land in this narrow couloir.
Trees and rocks border each side of this narrow chute.
The lefthand chute starts wide and easy.
Don't be fooled.
This chute twists left and then right before ending in two choices.
Either you will air off the cliff at the bottom or work your way right through the trees to end in the other Twin Chute.
Regardless, these remote chutes are for experienced experts only.
At the bottom you can sidestep back up and duck back under the rope into Northway or you can head to the S-Bends Chutes.
