Aiguille du Fruit

Quick trip out with Ginny today to the Aiguille du Fruit above Courchevel. This 3051m peak dominates the view from many parts of Courchevel and sports a very obvious large N facing easy-angled couloir (400m at 35-40º). Skiers left of this main couloir a narrower Y-shaped couloir heads up to the ridge giving a good tight line on 40-45º slopes. The weather has been very warm and the snow was a little on the slushy side, but still supportive enough to climb.

Looking up at the Aig. du Fruit, the L hand branch of the Y couloir can be seen snaking up to the ridge.
