Description

You can access this direct from the top of the Plan Joran lift or skiing diagonally down and R from the top of the slow Tabe chair. Assuming the latter ski diagonally down and R across a wide clearing in the trees, which itself makes a nice run, passing over the top of a thicker area of trees, to enter the slopes that pass roughly underneath the Plan Joran lift line itself. There are usually enough trees and bushes to allow visibility on flat light days. Follow the fall line down drifting down and to the R of the lift line, before arriving at the catch-all track that leads you right and back to the beginning of the Tabe lift.
