Tour Ronde – Gervassutti Couloir

80cm’s of new snow in the past week we decided to give the biggest peaks another day to settle so we set our sights on the Gervassutti couloir on the Tour Ronde.  This 1500 foot 50 degree couloir has been on my personal ski list for some years.  A beautiful peak with an esthetic sustained couloir!
