Airon Bowl - exit left Map

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.

Description

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.
