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.
The upper section of Rabbit Ears is an obvious opening in the trees below the traverse towards Bear Pits.
Work either side of the rocky rib.
The skiers right side is less popular and a little steeper.
Follow the run between the twin cliffs that give this run its name to the open slope below.
Often the snow just below the ear-shaped cliffs is untracked and protected.
