Hunt your line by Sébastien Varlet #3A ski touring adventure | Aravis
For the 3rd episode we catched up at Col des Aravis with Bastien Vidonne and Alex Chambet at the end of February.
With spring snow conditions and warm weather we decided to go for a steep skiing mission.
We took advantage of the limited avalanches risk to ski an expose line. We had to chose the right timing in the day to hike on hard snow and ski some softer snow in the afternoon.
This type of skiing is really different from freeriding, it's not about speed and jumping cliff but more about making no mistake on the way up and down.
So we went for the Chauchefoin Ramp, a steep line starting with a 45-50° couloir, then an expose traverse to reach the final ramp which is between 40-45°. Skiing the Ramp was the main idea of this line.
