Gerwetsch Couloir

One of Zermatts classics and a great place to practice steeper turns and ice anchors

Its short but it has a very rewarding exit on the right snow conditions.

During some seasons the wind can work its magic and completely fill the narrower section, making it skiable from the top without having to abseil.

The couloir is only about 150m long but once you exit it you find a nice and mellow run filled with pillows and cool little drops which can put a big smile or a big pile of snow in your face.

Its probably also one of the most photographed lines in Zermatt but I think the best angle is yet to be found.

In terms of riding Samuel Anthamatten has set the bar pretty high when he put up this amazing top to bottom run back in 2014.

Nice one Sam , we wish we were there too!
