Description

Long consistent couloirs offer amazing skiing.

From the top of the l'Aiguillette lift traverse hard right maintaining your height to the ridge line.

Turning the corner choose from one of these classic couloirs which can offer exceptional and sustained skiing all the way to the valley floor.

Traverse back to the Vallorcine station.

These couloirs are steep and very prone to avalanche.

Make sure you know the conditions before you set out.

In early season or in lean conditions there can be quite a few bushes in the various couloirs.

Best avoided at the very end of a hot day as they heat up in the afternoon sun.
