    According to Tom, this actually had been skied before and therefore qualifies as an entrance, although we didn't enter this way:


    And here is the entry ridge for many a run off the Aigui tram:


    Talk about anticipation:

    Ok here are a few from some less well known spots:



    Couloir de la Mina - Porte Puymorens, Fr - about a 45degree entrance but flattens out to around 38degrees



    View looking up.


    Coulée des Cabines - Mont Dore


    The 'Y' Mont Dore, France

    If you are a resident of the Axis of Weasel this month's French 'Montagnes Magazine' was impressed by our article on Mont Dore. Perfide Rosbifs.

    Couloir W - Chamrousse

    That looks like a pair of broken ski tips poking out over the edge. Damn Euro winters!

    This is Voodoo Chile, one of the many steep couloirs in a small valley in northern Norway.

    From the sublime to the ridiculous, there is but one small step

    Should be fixed now... Never had much luck from the top of the Aig. Rouge... it was closed most of the time, and when open was packed (on the varet) and cloudy. Mid-station has some nice stashes, however (As long as you kept away from the lanches, flying km and lower end of robert-blanc) The ridge from dou de l'homme -> lanches and coming off the end of that ridge are good though... It's the lee side so catches all the windblown basically from the Aig. Grive round (even if it's a bit heavy) and sloughs off nicely...

    Thanks for that edg....forgot my manners, as well as how to link pics, last time!

    Yeah, got quite lucky as was there for a month (feb->mar) and it coincided with some good snow snow made for some interesting skiing as it was my first visit to the area. Plus one of my best friends spent 5 seasons there so had the skinny on where to look for some nice stuff elsewhere in the area

    Don't rate the link to La Plagne though - takes soooooo long to get over, it hardly seems worth it!

    I was surprised at the snow too - was there in April and not only was there powder but pretty much daily refills. Main problems were the crowds (both on and [not too far] off piste) and the temperatures - the snow lower down (~1800m) was getting soft really quickly - which lead to some rather painful head plants when transferring for plowed to unplowed (there isn't much resistance held up by a tele binding if your skis come to a grinding hault ). Good times none-the-less.

    Tries the La Plagne link once, and it did take forever. There seem to be some good stuff over there if you're staying that side, but the sun tends to beat your to it, and if you're going over from Les Arcs just too much damned effort.

    And no problem!

    PUCKER FACTOR. I feel it tightening up just looking at the photo.
