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 :-)

@gorilla, It's not the Glacier de la Girose just above the col du Lac is it?
If so, that pic really foreshortens things!

Pretty sure it's not. I think I have identified the background (maybe...) but can't work out where on earth gorilla has got himself to Laughing

Isn’t that the glacier at the top of La Grave with the drag lift? What did you do with it?

Should confess, it's not actually my photo. Although, given that I am in it, you might have guessed that. I don't think it's been mucked around with, although there was probably some zoom involved.

Will credit the photo when someone guesses where it is. Otherwise it might give the game away a little Blush

Hi, I just looked at this new post and it is very embarrassing. I wanted to post one of my pictures of this couloir recently and thought I had. After it had been on a short while, being unable to remember who the skier was, I posted:
"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, possibly before I skied it."
It seems it was Arno's. Sorry Arno. I must have decided to copy it for my own pleasure without labelling who's it was. Mea culpa. I often look at my own photos now and can't remember where they were taken.

@snowball, no worries, it's not mine. I'm the skier but the photographer was @offpisteskiing

@Sharkymark, <cough> first descents are probably a bit unfair unless you were there

S couloir to the right of this picture is a good descent but Valdez is more exciting. Slightly scary short approach along the ridge, mind you: I feel safer on skis.

Having already posted it myself for people to guess I didn't think I should say. I think @Grinning should have it.

It is a great line but quite spicy access. Not long but a bit of an exposed scramble IIRC
