    Thanks. Still learning the names and trails around Perisher.

    Now if we were talking Thredbo or even Selwyn, then I have a clue. Perisher is still pretty new to me.

    Skiing from Smiggins to Perisher: Catch the Link T in Smiggins (left side of the bowl) and ski off on the cat track to the left OR catch the Burke T (left side of the duplex T) and hike diagonally uphill to the crest of the hill then traverse around to the left (towards and then across the top of the Link T), then ski down next to Piper T - turn right under Piper to go straight to Interceptor (and thence to Blue Cow) or continue down the Piper T line and across the bridge to Telemark T.

    Perisher to Smiggins: Either catch Mitchell T or V8 chair (you want to be up at the top of Front Valley no later than 4:20pm) and ski down past Telemark T and across the bridge to Piper T (20m uphill skate/hike required). Follow the cat track from the top of Piper around into Smiggins and ski down into the bowl (you are deposited about 2/3 of the way down next to the Burke T.

    Alternative route: Ski down Pretty Valley (from mid or top station on the Quad, or down Copperhead Road from the top of Pleasant Valley at Blue Cow) _past_ the musical hot chocolate place at the bottom of Pretty Valley double chair and past the bottom of Telemark T straight to the bottom of Piper T (same 20m skate/hike required after crossing the bridge below Telemark) then continue into Smiggins as above.

    One the linking T-bars are open for the season they usually stay open until we get a lot of r**n or an extended run of hot weather - Telemark and Link slopes face north and Piper never gets a huge amount of snow on it.

    And if none of above works there's always the free shuttle bus

    Thanks team. It is all starting to make sense and I am now getting around the resort more sensibly. Lots of different ways to put things together.
