TWGR [Haut Giffre] Cornes de Loriaz

Since I made the previous outing to Pointe de la Terrasse and I saw this amazing chute of Cornes de Loriaz, I was looking forward going back to this sector to finally ride this North oriented chute.

The snow was really deep and the ascent was more swimming than climbing. We stopped 50m under the pass... too late and too tired to reach the top of the chute.

TWGR [Aravis] Combaz chute

Outing to L'Etale in the Aravis.

I hiked from Aravis pass in the Marion valley and then reached the bottom of Combaz chute crossing the Blonnière valley.

Some rocks in the middle of the chute made the ascent a bit difficult...

TWGR [Grand-Massif] Couloir aux Poubelles

An outing to Flaine [Grand-Massif] for the last day of 2012.

After having hiked from the top of Grand Vans lift to the "Pointe de Véret", riding the famous "Couloir aux Poubelles" was a good way to finish the year...
