Here we go again, another season :)
Went ski touring in the Two Thumb Range, NZ a couple of weeks ago. Found some good snow.
Snuck up on Thursday after the midweek snow. 15cm of squeaky stuff. A powder day in September is not to be sneezed at. Cool and breezy and misty...
Road opened about 2am I think. Large article page 3 of the Chch paper the next day. You can't pay for publicity like that. Screams out at people,...

Made a short 6 minute video of our ski attempts on Mts Castor and Pollux in September 2012. We flew in, climbed and skied them, then...
