Couloirs of Chamois

Happy New Year! The skiing is a bit more challenging now with the various wind events of the past 3 weeks. But with a nice base from the mountain tops to the valley bottoms, we are still finding fine adventure. Sarah, Niall and I skied a couloir full of chamois, one kilometer long and 700 meters of vertical- strait down!

The weather has been fabulous and is forecasted to remain so. It will be cold, with temperatures around -10 in the mornings around Verbier.
