Best Ski Touring Couloirs

The best ski touring couloirs in the Écrins, Briançon and Queyras.

Below is a list of the Couloirs or Combe's accessed by ski touring, these could be short add on's near the summit or big long descents. It goes without saying these are for the experienced only, with good skiing technique on steep ground, on some of these route falling is not a safe option. Also having a solid knowledge of alpine skills such as axe and crampon work and for some routes rope work is required.

If you are keen to start learning the skills to ski Couloirs but are not that experienced we highly recommend you use a guide to teach you these's skills.

1) Rouya

2) Combe de Riou

3) Chateau Renard Couloir Nord en Boucle
