Ski tourer killed by fall at Puy St Vincent

A 39 year old ski tourer has been killed after falling 200 meters in a couloir on the crĂȘte de Reychard/Onde sector in the commune of Puy St Vincent. It appears the couloir had been swept by an avalanche prior to the fall, leaving a hard, icy surface. The skier was carried 30 meters over cliffs during the fall. His companion gave the alert at around 10h30. The summit is a popular destination with ski tourers.
