Description

A brilliant companion to the Couloir de Pramain, leaving that route beyond the col to find an even more secluded bowl to the north. Again the skiing is not too hard, but you're a long way from the crowds and any help here, so make sure you're prepared. Follow the route described for the Couloir de Pramain until you reach the scoop just before the col. Take a high line on the right and pop over the ridge before you reach the actual col, then traverse right to reach an open slope leading into the main bowl. Ski down the fantastic wide open slopes of the bowl heading for the wide avalanche corridor through the trees below. Follow this straight down between the trees and find a place to cross the stream below to reach the piste leading to the Bauches chair.
