Airon Bowl - exit right Map

Description

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.

As you go down you can cut out to the right under the Airon chair – about halfway down there are a series of small cliff bands/ rock faces so you need to cut skiers right back across to Chamois 1 piste above these.
