Description

Great skiing through the "Moomin forest" so called from the small trees resembling those in the Moomins- a Swedish comic strip. Continue East along the ridge from the Taillay lift and join the small col. Traverse high to join the slopes directly beneath the Tetes des Etablons and follow the fall line into the Moomin trees. Join the Planards-Carrefour blue run where you cross it. Beware of avalanche danger from the steep ground under the Tete des Etablons.
