I wanted to take advantage of the last window to do something in the Argentiere Basin before the Grands Montets’ lifts close.
The North Faces were still icy so i decided to go and have a look at the East Couloir of the Col Sup du Tour Noir. My friend Matteo joined me in this adventure.
It is always a big question mark when you ski a line on sight without climbing it.
We spent a great evening at the top of the Grands Montets drinking beer in front of a breathtaking sunset.
The cold breeze of the next morning kept the snow cold.
Climbing the southwest couloir was pretty tiring due to the fact we were sinking till our knees.
The ride has been Epic !! The Swiss side is beautiful and incredibly wild.
With no doubt one of the best classic of the Massif !!
