    Voor velen waarschijnlijk onbekend, maar de beste man heeft toch een aantal geweldige rotsroutes in Valle d'Orco geopend. (En prijkt iconisch op de voorkant van de topo).
    Helaas is vrijdag hij samen met 2 anderen omgekomen in een lawine op Monte Chaberton

    The alert was given by Margherita's father in the late afternoon when she failed to return home or answer her phone. The French rescue helicopter searched the area on Friday but was unable to find any trace of the skiers. Yesterday evening a French/Italian ground search found tracks but were unable to proceed further due to poor light. The search resumed at first light and the bodies of the three skiers were found at the based of the 700 meter couloir, apparently killed by the fall. The accident has shocked the tight knit mountain community of Val di Susa where Margherita and her family are well known.

    Margherita was a ski teacher and keen sailor and daughter of the mayor of Sauze di Cesana. Adriano Trombetta had 17 years experience as a guide and specialized in dry tooling. The NE couloir of the Chaberton is rated 4.3 E3 - steep but not extreme but with a risk of death if you fall. It averages 40° over 700 m with sections at 45°. There is a known danger of windslab at the exit.
