Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@stevew, There are other ways, but you can put your photo on https://imgur.com then copy the link (top right corner of your photo) and put it on here with .jpg added and [img] before and [/img] after.

Suddenly wondering if this photo is mine or Arno's. Would be embarrassing if it were Arno's, but I remember he mentioned skiing it on SnowHeads, many years ago, before I skied it.

No. (Actually I never skied Flaine, I must go there. It is close to where I went to visit a writer I admired, one summer, so I went and had a look at the totally empty village. I saw one person (far off).

Actually, only some of the best skiers on here will have actually skied it since it is a fairly steady 40º, a bit steeper after the narrower bit in the distance and possibly 45º at the top. One of several good off piste descents on this face... More may have looked up it when skiing past the bottom.
You don't need to get the couloir name.

Nobody got it yet, so here is a photo from the distance (many more steep couloirs and less extreme slopes you can't see in this photo, around further right. And a piste.)

Yes, of course off-piste. No piste is as steep as 40º, other than for a few yards, let alone 45º. Guides quite regularly take people off piste down this main valley from a Coll. So what is the mountain? Or the resort?

Valdez couloir, back of Aiguille Rouge, quite near the cable car.

@denfinella, glad to hear you took it so seriously Smile

Since that one was a "jump in", I think someone else should do the jump-in.

However, JUST TO GIVE PEOPLE SOMETHING TO LOOK AT TILL THEY DO, here is another couloir in another part of Les Arcs.

@dobby, Arc 2000, but no idea who runs the hotels.

@BobinCH, Well, it is that too, but loads of couloirs (at least half a dozen others close to that last one), extreme pitches (and some quite tough black runs as well). For example directly under the Aiguille Rouge cable car is very steep!

That looks like a lake associated with a dam, below (judging by the bare area close to the water - currently ice - edge).
But with a piste in that relation? Hmm
