No new lines in Chamonix? Pfffft! Local boys Laurent Dupré, Roch Malnuit, Davide Capozzi and Hervé Sanglard beg to differ. Taking advantage of exceptional snow conditions the crew took a day off from their day jobs to pin this sweet first snowboard descent of an 800-meter couloir descending the west face of the Aiguille du Gouter. Yes, that's right, the same west face that hundreds of climbers ascend on their way to the top of Mont Blanc every summer. Watch to find out how they scored such a prime line hiding in plain sight.
