Itinerary

Itinary

Easily accessible from the village of Ailefroides, it will only take us 2 hours of ski approach to reach the base of the couloir.
We will then go up the 850m of vertical drop to realize the quality of the snow. From there, we'll start our descent, mastering the technique of steep turns.
Back to the village to bring back the good pressure that invaded us during the descent.
