Description

This is an exciting alternative if after skinning up "the finger" route from Standalhytta if You feel like the descent there will not be enough.

You can either skinn up from there and than ski down to the ?Romedalen? valley and have someone bring You up to the main parking lot under Standalhytta.

We haven't skied all the way down though, but bootpacked back up and skied back to the car.

The entrance to the couloir is quite obvious, right on the other side of the pass where most people finish their tour up to the finger.

It turns left and than continues with the fall line.

In the middle it gets steepest and narrowest, but nothing to crazy.

If the couloir is in really icy condition, the fall will take You all the way down to valley, but there are no cliffs to fall of.

Have in mind that it is considerably steep up there.

When in good condition, this couloir provides with magnificent skiing on the proper steepness.

It is prone to sluff though, so have that in mind.

We have turned back up as soon as the couloir has opened up at the bottom, so I cannot provide any beta on the lower parts in the trees.
