Description

This couloir is rarely in good condition, but as it is visible from the bottom of the Sant'Anna to Stafal cable car station it is possible to check the snow.

From the top of the Sant'Anna cable car traverse south to the plateau to reach the entrance of the couloir (left side of the cross). Follow it almost to the end, then traverse to the left in the direction of the cable car station.
