Bosentrift Couloirs

Some nice couloirs facing north east into Taschalp.

Here a view in late spring.

They can also be approached by Tuftern Kumme on the west ridge. The view is great but the terrain proved to be quite tricky with long rocky slabs underneath the snow making things a bit slippery.

As always the views in Zermatt are the best 🙂

Here a view of the west side of Bösentrift in winter.

Hard work bootpacking up some light and deep powder snow.

To reach the entrance we ended up abseiling 10 meters of slaby terrain we didn’t feel comfortable down climbing. The surprise factor of entering a couloir from the other side feels quite exciting.

The couloir rides very well and there was plenty of space for some deep powder turns.
