Sparkle Trees Map

Exit the wall of terror at any point, taking skiers left down towards the main trail. Don't go too far left, however as the trail is flat and you will end up walking. The trees are pretty open for the most part, and although it's a short run, it's great fun, and an awesome introduction to tree runs! Don't go when you know the snow will be slushy, as it's South facing however.
