Aiguille de la Noire North Face

Fun day skiing with Jerome, Fergus and Damo on the Aiguille de la Noire north face. This face overlooks the vallee blanche and is a great line that is never too technical or difficult but always somewhat exposed. You reach the Aiguille de la Noire by taking the ‘chicken foot’ shaped couloir on the Italian side of the vallee noire. This can be reached by a 40minute approach from Aiguille du Midi (ski touring) or ski direct from the Skyway cable car in a few minutes.
