Pyramides Bowl Map

The Pyramides chairlift takes skiers over an open amphitheatre of fun and easily-accessible off piste terrain. Follow the obvious valley veering off skier's right of the Pyramides piste. The obvious route is to follow this wide gully all the way down, but it'll be tracked out fastest. Traverse skiers' right, staying as high as you can on the right bank of the gully to access the slightly steeper slope facing the chair. Alternatively come down directly beneath the chair either through or over the small cliffs and rocks that you'll have scoped on the chairlift ride up!
