weather and conditions


Hot and sunny day


Entry to the couloir is still a bit tricky due to rocks that are not covered by the snow. Couloir itself is in good condition and was a really pleasant to ski down. Exit from the couloir still needs some new snow. Right now there is a narrow (1m wide) section way down with little bit of snow with some rocks on the other side and ice on the other. Under the snow there is ice. Part of us slided down with the snowboard but it was tricky.

personal comments

Magnificent ambient with high mountains, and really nice couloir. We were a bit unlucky when getting out of the couloir as one of us slipped on a difficult place - luckily no broken bones and we were able to ski down.

Tour itself requires quite a bit of time, and the elevation does not really tell the whole story about times it takes to complete the journey.
