Vallons of La Meije - Couloir de l’Ours

The Couloir de l’Ours (Bear Couloir) is short but intense. Access is via the magical east slopes of the La Grave La Meije cable car. Take care as avalanches are possible, as these slopes are exposed to several directions of wind and heat up in the sun at the end of the morning. These lines are ideal for making big freeride turns in powder on steep terrain. Two entrances are possible into the couloir: technical, steep and narrow. It widens often with a snowdrift, a magical ride to the right and a final straight or big turn to choose from to join the moraine and the classic lines skiing on the Vallons of La Meije.
