Pointe de la Sana & Rochers Barmes des l’Ours Ski (Val d’Isère) 27/01/18

Skiing the ENE face of Pointe de la Sana has been high on my tick list for some time, having skied the East couloir and seeing the possibility for an entrance into this couloir from the exposed face above. Me and Si left from the first lifts in Tignes to make it to the top of the Grand Prè chairlift to start our descent down into the Charvet Valley to begin the climb up to Pointe de la Sana (3436m).

 

 

We were given some amazing views of the south faces of both the Grande Motte and the Grande Casse. These faces both have descents I’d love to complete – they cross some amazing scenery!

 

 

The ENE face of Pointe de la Sana was sadly too wind loaded for us to complete a safe passage, so we headed towards the Rochers Barmes des l’Ours to ski the north face from the summit in sable POW 🙂
