Description

For those who want to try something different or avoid the mogul field of the Grand Couloir, there are several variations possible, the most common of these which is about the same difficulty as the Grand Couloir is the Epaule or 'shoulder' couloir.

Start as per the Grand Couloir but head further skiers left to the entrance of the couloir.

The line can be reached from P2 or the higher entrance from the old disused Dome/Trifides 1 drag lift which takes in the couloir above.
