Couloir De La Chorde – Above Plaine Joux

With good weather and keen to escape the resort crowds following a decent snowfall in Chamonix, Lorne, Sandy and Colin headed up Plaine Joux above Servos to ski a couloir they had spotted during the summer. The route took a little longer than planned, due to thin snow on their indented direct route and breaks for route finding. While the riding might not have been the best this time round it sounds like it will be a good descent when there is more snow, maybe in the spring. Read the whole report and route here on Lorne’s blog.
