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.
Come through the Loco outbound gate and traverse around the ridge nose.
When you come to an opening, get psyched for perhaps the best run on the mountain, which hosts a mix of open powder 8 turns and cliff bombs that will explode any beer cans in your sack! Stay left of the Rock Face powder field and look for small drops off to the left.
You can hit several of these in succession.
You might be tempted to ski right, but the Rock Face pitch is highly variable.
Half way down you can cut hard left into the “O” glades or continue down where a mandatory air awaits.
This 8’ft ledge drop is fairly automatic and requires no skill.
Just make sure there is enough snow to land before you go:) Ski down straight or cut left to hit the lower “O” glade run.
Catch the cat trail from Beano’s cabin to lead you back to Talon’s lodge.
