Couloir Capucin, Col du Tacul

When Tom Grant messages you and asks if you’re free for a ski tomorrow, it’s a good idea to say yes. I was stoked to join Tom and Jake on a ski of the Capucin couloir on the Col du Tacul. I’d skied it before with Fergus and Barney and was keen to have a smoother experience this time around, and be back before dark this time!

We found the couloir in perfect powder conditions and Tom and Jake opened it up delightfully and I followed a little slower, still a bit hesitant on steeper slopes with my newly crafted ACL but enjoying every turn nonetheless.
