On Sunday we bailed from our original objective, but there was still enough time to do something on the north side. Inspired by yesterdays great conditions I wanted to try to ski the new variation of N-couloir. It turned out to be a complete line with some really steep terrain. Although the day didn't go as planned this beautiful descent saved the day. By combining these two lines you'll get 750-800 meters of great steep skiing. Definitely worth a visit.
Here are just couple selfies from the new variation. Looking the line from below it doesn't seem to go through. But there is a about three meter wide chute that takes you to the upper section. The last 100 meters are really steep terrain.

|The top 100 meters of the new variation are pretty damn steep.|
