Winter Alpine Couloir Climbing

Winter Alpinism and couloir guiding is one of our favourites, with winter alpine climbing courses running every March/April over the last 6 years. We’ve had some pretty full on adventures, all with a small team of clients willing to put in the extra effort for that extra reward. There’s something pretty special about skiing to your route, climbing 500m of stella ice, then skiing back to the valley for beer and pizza (or alternatively topping out in the dark, followed by a night bivied in the Midi toilets – you’re never too old to have this kind of fun… ) Here’s a selection of pics from our courses over the last few years (thanks to Jim Bird, David Horwood, Gerry Arcari and Ian Hey for some of the shots).
