Given the lack of vis on the Grands Montets yesterday its hard to believe anyone would attempt the Pas de Chevre. The Point de View piste was challenging enough.

I’m always nervous about lack of viz. Makes route finding hard, rescues difficult and is the run worth it? Maybe in an enclosed couloir but the Pas de Chevre with its complicated exit.

I mentioned it in passing on the February Snow thread
