At last the Gervasutti Couloir on Tacul. A dream for over ten years. Each time I skied the Vallee Blanche there it was, like the ultimate temptress.  Its one of my top 3 ski lines alongside the Couturier and Marinelli. All unbroken ski lines on stunning mountains.

Tom and myself headed up off the first bin and on Tacul met Nate who came over to the top to evaluate conditions with his connoisseur’s eye. It didn’t take him long to decide abandon his own plans for the day and come for an unexpected run!

Thanks guys!
