Toughest slopes on the Alps

  1. My vote goes to La Grave!

  2. Interesting, though it’s not as simple as that. The difficulty of each slope depends upon the snow and weather conditions. A descent on relatively stable fresh powder is far easier than on icy moguls. Also it quotes the Vallee Blanche as being extreme, but with a guide (you’d be mad to attempt it without one) there are some descents suited to intermediates. It includes Mont Fort at Verbier but Tortin was way more challenging in my eyes. Then of course if you include the Vallee Blanche which is not a piste, then why not the Cosmique Couloir or the ENSA Couloir?
