Hidden Faces: Les Marécottes

By paulski on 25 February 2021 · 1

This couloir is one that we actually wanted to ski from the beginning of the season. Surely one that is not obvious, a real hidden gem. This descent is located between Les Marécottes and Les Portes du Soleil, it is actually a kind of eastern flank of the famous mountain massif Les Dents du Midi. After a first failed attempt and a very long-lasting avalanche danger, the mission was a bigger challenge than expected...

  • Rochers de Gagnerie
  • Couloir E de la Vierge
  • 5.1 / E3 TD- / S5
  • 2600m, 60m rappel
