Bec du corbeau's Morgins line Map

From both ski lifts hike up until the top of the "Bec du corbeau", this take about 30-45 minutes walk until to reach the top. Line is about 45 % steep all alongside this line where trees are the main hazards. Low snow cover can be the main problem as the line gets a lot of sun so make sure there's enough snow before heading in and some good base as this is going to be all along a trees line, these trees leads you to the end of the line. Avalanche risks are to be taken in consideration as face exposure can make it more unstable due to the sun. The line finishes on "Corbeau's chairlift line" which leads back to Morgins village by blue piste "47 - Culet".
