Trifides - Middle Couloir Map

This lies skiers right of the classic Grand Couloir. This line is still relatively direct but is steeper and more exposed - a fall here could be very serious. It starts slightly to the right of the main Grand Couloir. As with the other Trifides couloirs, the line can also be accessed from the line of the disused Dome/Trifides drag lift by taking in the couloir above.



Extreme skiing terrain above 45 degrees. These routes are reserved for experienced experts.
