    Had a few mates who have been up at the Grey Mare range for a week, one of them just sent through this video with some pretty stunning shots, thought you guys might be interested.

    I love the Grey Mare range and have very fond memories of Grey Mare Hut.

    Same. Pretty rare for me to ever watch a ski vid twice.
