Luca Pandolfi takes us up the mountain and into perfect powder conditions in his series, “Lines Through Luca's Lens”.
In this episode: Due to the exceptional snow conditions we were able to ski this beautiful line from the top of Les Courtes (which is rarely skied from the top).
This line is complete - you drop into the North face from the top of one of the best ridable big mountains in Chamonix, you ski an airy ridge, endure some technical mixed passes, ride a big open hanging field and end with a steep exit couloir.
The big radius free ride turns and the face-shots you experience on the hanging field are some of the best you'll ever get.
Big thanks to my friends Ben Briggs, Tom Grant, Mikko Heimonen and Ross Hewitt for the great day out.
