Hike a short and steep slope along the left orographic side to Croda del Lago pass and then, following a slope on the north side, ski down in Duron valley to Docoldaura. Then hike the snowy dirt road to Duron pass and, before arriving to Alpe di Tires hut, take a little valley on the left, which leads to the Molignon double pass.
