Higher up corbeau's lift line Map

This is an easily accessed line as yo turn left from the top of black slope "Le Corbeau" . The entrance of the line can feel like a piste into a an area clear of trees, but there are trees all along the line guiding the navigation. The line gets some good amount of snow in this altitude, however West aspect can bring some problems of wet avalanches, weather check is needed before heading in. Avalanche risk is pretty high around here and the middle section really steep makes the risk higher. The line finishes on the blue piste " Maxime" after a last part of trees which leads back to "Coq's" ski lifts and the bottom of the ski resort.
