Description

Possibly the best known of the three classic couloirs from Attelas. Identifiable by the big rock in the middle. Whilst easily accessible, the couloir is steep, narrow, rocky and only for very experienced skiers. A slip or a fall could have serious consequences. You can check out the access and conditions from the Funispace lift or by skiing Creblet. From the Funispace lift station access the small shallow bowl that follows the ridge line before turning right in to the couloir. The couloir itself is around 250m. Continue down to join the blue Etierces piste.
