Hermine's forest line Map

Another easy access line required some hike in front of top of blue slope "Hermine", hike is about 30 minutes hike. The line is pretty steep at the entrance and gets less steepness throughout the run, line is going to to be close the trees all alongside. The line exposure as north face keep the snow fresh, make sure about the weather window due to navigation and time needed. Avalanche risk is pretty high around here as well into the entrance part due the steepness where avalanches can start. The line finishes on the blue piste "Hermine" which leads back to the Cret beni ski area after another walk by the empty patches of trees at the bottom of the line.
