    Morning all,

    First time to Perisher this year, going in July. Intermediate boarder and am interested in some of the better tree skiing runs/areas. I caught the bug after going to Japan and whilst I realise it will be nothing like that here, i am keen to give it a try in areas with decent snow cover

    Thanks in advance

    In all seriousness if people have favourite secret spots they won’t post it on a public forum with thousands of readers. Even if it’s on the trail map they won’t. I wouldn’t anyway.

    Good luck though in finding good trees.

    If you treat all the beginners standing still as trees, I suppose that this is true!

    Double trouble is fun if you don't mind a short walk. Or two.

    Yup. I've got a coupla golden spots that are real fun with fresh snow and lotsa fun even days after a dump.
    No way I'm gonna make them public even if they are hardly secret and are in bounds.

    I love the Guthega trees, lower international t bar area, upper smiggins and most of Blue Cow on a pow day.
