Château Des Dames - Touring Map

Wide north/northeast facing couloir located south of the village Cervinia. Very popular couloir for heliskiing therefore, be early if you want to make the first tracks. Really nice to tour up before sunrise and then wave to the first skiers flying in when you ski down.


There's a small space to park above the quarry and also about 100 m, coming from Cervinia, there's a big parking lot.

Total incline is about 1200 m and the gradient varies from 0 in the beginning up to 35 degree incline. You need to be used to touring and have a good fitness level, this is a hard climb.

You have a lot of space to ski on and an amazing view on the top of your tour.



Serious gradient of 30-38 degrees where a real risk of slipping exists.

Medium Exposure (E2)
