A striking line seen from Blauherd.

It’s inviting and it has loads of space for some big turns.

No lifts, no crowds,usually requires a dawn start unless you’re one of those PDG mutants 🙂

The feeling of being greeted by the early morning sun is always rewarding and the wilderness of the valley is astonishing.

As you work out your way to the bottom of the couloir you get some pristine glacier views.

Stuart (Foggy) showing us some graceful kickturns.

The bootpacking on the face is a nice workout. Having your vert snowshoes with you can save you some energy for the way down.

The last few hundred meters start feeling a little heavy on the legs but we look up and keep going. Here Foggy not showing any signs of soreness..

Once at the top you got blessed with an amazing view towards the north face of the Matterhorn. For me this is the highlight of this tour so I decided not to post a photo so I don’t spoil your hike…. Ohh yeah the 600m drop in dry powder is also not bad.

The bottom section is not very steep but pretty fun to ride.

On the way down there are a few options depending on the conditions..
