Bec du corbeau's side line. Map

From either "Chalet neuf or Culet's" ski lifts, hike for about 30-45 minutes to the top of the "Bec du corbeau", line will have the same steepness all along around whee a good weather window is needed as it does take time to reach the peak. The line gets a lot of sun so make sure the base is enough good before heading in, avalanche risk is pretty important here as we are just below 2000 meters. Other hazard to be aware of on this line are the trees into the lower part. The line finishes on the blue piste "49 - Ecotis" which leads back to Morgins ski area.



Steep skiing at 38-45 degrees. This requires very good technique and the risk of falling has serious consequences.
