Yesterday Brendan and I got a first bin up the Midi to ski the Jager couloir. The couloir is well filled with snow and the burgshrund was easy to cross. There were excellent conditions in the couloir, even the snow cover on the icy step was good and there was no need for any side slipping. There was a large snow slide that came down the couloir just as we started to climb which was a little worrying but it turned out the stability was good and we easily controled our slough. The pictures from the decent are below.
