This line starts right on the summit of Bidean nam Bian, giving you the possibility of a big descent with suitable snow cover. In March 2014, it was possible to ski from the summit to the gorge in the Lost Valley, giving 700m of vertical descent.
The face fills readily after South-Westerly storms, but be particularly aware of the avalanche risk, as the line begins with a convex start, followed by a descent into a large bowl. With good cover, you can ski anywhere on the face. Away from the obvious fall line from the summit, an optional short chute can be taken in on skiers left if you are needing your fix of gully skiing (it is very short!).
This face is known as "Paradise" in the Glencoe offpiste guidebook.
