A very fun line coming off the benches of Table Mountain.

Description

This shot is steep and committing. Though it does have pockets of trees to shelter in, do not think this makes you safe from avalanche danger.

From Herman Saddle, head south, skirting a bench of Table Mountain. This is the first skiable line off of the mountain, and it's a good one. The steep slopes beckon high speeds and when conditions are right, you won't regret having taken this line.
