    I've been told you need a skidoo just to get from Blue Cow to Mt Perisher! Serious!

    Is Smiggen worth going?

    I'm going up this Sunday, so i might rule out Smiggen. Looks like a kids/family friendly area

    Great for kids. Good and relatively easy tree skiing in blizzards.

    Yeah pretty easy to do if you know you your way round. Even easier if you can ski from the top of smiggens to the ridge chair

    First attempt, during school holidays: fail
    Second attempt mid-week in August: win
    Plan the route so that you do not take the same lift more than once. Very doable. We started at 8:30. We were done by 2:30

    We stayed at a lodge in Smiggins years ago that set all guests the challenge of skiing all lifts in a day. Had a leader board etc. Needed to be a good day, mid week etc to do well

    The lifts that we did in order. We started from our lodge (Kalymaro) at 8:30
    It was a bluebird day midweek, so no delays. We even did the carpets. Our aim was to do each lift once only.
    Mission accomplished!

    Problem with trying it on a quiet midweek day is you have the issue of some lifts being On Demand. Often the Blue Cow T is on Demand and they just run the Freedom Quad, also Mt P Double is often On Demand.

    ok that is a much bigger task as there are often several runs accessed from the same lift.

    Actually not perisher's content.

    It's Spaz's.

    I couldn't his link.

    He must have supplied it to Perisher, the female boarder was the winner of the ski bum comp it was fined whilst she was in residence.
