Backcountry Skiing Areas

Featured Descent

Aladdin’s Coulior

From the drop in the route heads to the skiers right down a relatively wide chute, which bends left approximately half way down. There can be a short ice pitch on the lower part. Once out of the Couloir ski out of the corrie back to the ski area.

The intial slope is the steepest section and often corniced. The remainder is at less than forty degrees. An easier entrance can be had on the skiers left. A fall in the top section is ill advised as it could result in the skier tumbling down Aladdin's Mirror Direct.
