You will also notice that when you look into this bowl, directly in front of you is Gottleib's peak which will give you an idea where you are.
There are many ways out, the easiest being to ski to the top of the Motutapu chutes and ride down to the valley floor if you have time. Otherwise you can just skin back out to the top of the Saddle chair.
If you have time and the snow is stable then I suggest skinning up to Gotleib's and riding that to the valley floor.
Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
