Description

This is the steepest and most serious of the Attelas couloirs. It is extremely steep and very rocky. It should only be undertaken in good conditions - sometimes the entrance is very delicate or altogether impossible. From the Funispace lift station, ski SW along the ridge and identify the entrance to the couloir. You can return to the piste from the top of the ridge if the entrance doesn't go or conditions aren't right. The couloir is around 250m long. Continue down to join the blue Etierces piste.
