Also, on it's other side, are a series of couloirs that face northwest instead of west.

Because of their different aspect, these couloirs can be options when west facing isn't happening.

Approach by skinning up the Oncet valley or by traversing across from the top of the Panoramic ski lift and dropping into the valley.

Then come to the base of the couloir and skin/boot up.
