An open bowl that is prone to slide but has a long run in good conditions.


Analysing terrain data











The exposure grade does not take into account objective hazards (stone fall, seracs, etc) but only the consequences of the skier falling.

Low Exposure (E1): Exposure is limited to that of the slope itself. Getting hurt is still likely if the slope is steep and/or the snow is hard.

Medium Exposure (E2): As well as the slope itself, there are some obstacles (such as rock outcrops) which could aggravate injury.

High Exposure (E3): In case of a fall, death is highly likely.

Extreme Exposure (E4): In case of a fall, the skier faces certain death.


From the top of Tete de Saix this is usually a well skied bowl.

You can see it from the Airon chair and access it from the top of Perce Neige piste.

Be very careful and check this out as the bowl can slide. Once you are into the bowl you can pretty much pick any line you want to – keeping left and traversing high or straight down. If you head far left keep your speed up a bit as it flattens out you can find another route down through a shallow valley, giving you a bit of a longer run.

Once near the bottom you’ll have to keep your speed up as you traverse right and head out to Chamois 1 and the Airon chair.
