From the drop in the route heads to the skiers right down a relatively wide chute, which bends left approximately half way down. There can be a short ice pitch on the lower part. Once out of the Couloir ski out of the corrie back to the ski area.
The intial slope is the steepest section and often corniced. The remainder is at less than forty degrees. An easier entrance can be had on the skiers left. A fall in the top section is ill advised as it could result in the skier tumbling down Aladdin's Mirror Direct.[more]
Japan is an untapped resource for many backcountry users. The terrain is great, the days are long, and the snow has been really good in the last few years. More and more recently people are getting out skiing off-piste in japan, and there is a lot to explore still!Japan
