    It's Perisher, alright, but where from?

    Blue Cow slope may not have existed yet.

    The angle and lower ridges between it and mt blue cow put me in the same position. Above the high traverse of pretty valley but I've never been up there to see what it's like

    That looks like it is behind the Blue Cow terminal and accessed from the top of the Pleasant Valley chair. The photographer could be even standing on the cat track that takes you back to the terminal.

    Looking down on Copperhead road. Up the quad, turn right, go long a bit drop in. The Home Trail fairly stuffs that these days.

    Its past the top of Pleasant Valley
    This photo is from the top of Pleasant Valley just near the trail sign, you can see the rock formation from the right of the top photo with Mt Blue Cow behind them.

    I suspect the skier and photographer are somewhere near (or even in) the rocks on the right of this picture, which was taken from the same spot.

    VSG , you have the Mook spot incorrect. Move it skiers left of the top of the PV chair.

    Skier looks to be about midway between top of perisher quad and top of pleasant valley quad. Looks to be dropping into hidden valley with rocky knob directly ahead.

    If you go out to double trouble and turn left out of bounds you will get to this location.

    Oh, the pain of livng 1.75 hours from Skitube, then a 10 min train ride to the pic below. Had lots of time to take photos, @Hacski stood me up. Wrong phone number, yeah right. ;) Not many on the chairs here, either. Mid week skiing at over 1900m above sea level is nice.

    oh, click on the pic for full sized wonderment.

    No crowds. :D

    Oh, I hear you say "more VSG!, more!!"

    Oh, alright. The things a Snow God has to do, to appease his disciples and sheep.

    Same day, over on the mont of Perisher, on the second best chair in Oz. Snow I must say, was in primo condition, considering the sun and the relative warmth. @Hacski would vouch for it. :D

    Click on pic for goodness.
