Description

At the top of TS Dossau, take the TCD Dossau and take the blue run Colhet de Marimanha until you reach a natural mountain pass. Take off your skis and walk up the ridge in front of you, it is an open ridge that is easy to walk along. After 300 metres it gets narrower and flatter. The run starts halfway between the shoulder and the summit. The entrance sometimes has a cornice, so it is better to go in sideways and get onto the run a little bit before. The couloir is wide and steep at the top and becomes narrow in the middle section, after this narrow passage it gets wider and takes you back onto the piste. It is a short and fast run, people don't tend to do it because it takes a while to get there, but if you spend a few hours enjoying the Dossau area, it is a really good spot to go to.
