A friend of mine climbed this couloir recently and told me it was in good condition for sking so as soon as a good weather day came we set off to do it. We were planning to get a first bin up Grand Montet but after some hold ups we got to the car park at about 9am. We set off thinking we would probably not have time but decided to skin up to the bottom of the couloir and see. We climbed up the col du Chardonnet very quickly and decided to go for it. The conditions where great for climbing and sking and we made it back down to the car park for 4pm. unfortunately Ed got ill so didn’t ski the couloir but sat on the col and took some great pictures. This is a really aesthetic couloir and a great tour, I would highly recommend it.
