VAL SCURA – The Dark Valley

Author(s): The North Face
Video Release Date: February 7, 2022
Video Source: YouTube

3-time Freeride World Tour Champion Arianna Tricomi fulfills a childhood dream in skiing Val Scura (translation: the dark valley), one of the most famous couloirs of the Dolomites. Despite her youth spent on skis in the mountains surrounding her home resort of Alta Badia, it took until now for Arianna to finally step foot into the couloir she describes as „long, steep, narrow and perfect“. Moving away from the Dolomites seven years ago and traveling the world on skis has shed a new light onto her home mountains, and brought back up the desire to finally ski Val Scura, which Arianna had grown up looking into.
