Cops have been breath testing at the bottom of the Hutt access road last two days. I half way expected them to be doing rat tests as well

No matter how many chances I give Coronet, I always leave disappointed. There just doesn't seem to be many options for runs. It gets very same same very quickly. Plus it's not nicknamed Concrete Peak for no reason
I was being facetious.

But seriously, unless I'm out in the BC, or it is really an epic powder day (with minimal crowds) elsewhere, it's my #1 in the Southern Lakes for inbounds, lift accessed riding.

The personality change of the Southern Lakes mountains over the last few years has been pretty classic.

The Tbar unload and bullwheel at Rainbow needs a bit of work.

Well it is 5.50am here in Christchurch. I thought a plane was taking off cos I heard a rumble. Then the whole building shook! Was I just in my first earthquake???

Well there you go. A 4 is more than I have ever had! Painless entry through customs. You take the self test kit and exit immigration so you can do it later on day one. Do a quick online survey to report it and you are done until day 5. You gotta wonder how many just report negative regardless of result.

Beautiful drive through Arthur's Pass yesterday. Now I know where quite a few ski fields are now (other than internet) as I never took notice before.

Last night and tonight at Punakaiki Beach camp before heading south down the West Coast. Just loving finally being here.

Omg I could do without the midgies or whatever you call them here. I was hoping in winter they would not be around.

My 50th birthday today.
I would love to be skiing today. That’s only happened once in my life. 12 years ago today at Coronet Peak.

The next year we flew to Queenstown to do the same but there was zero snow.
My youngest is a July baby, so gets to ski on her birthday most years, this year will be in Queenstown. Eldest is a February baby and had his 13th in Japan.

March for me, next year will be a first in Canada :)

Happy birthday!

Anyone care to comment on crowding at Ruapehu in NZ October school holidays? Second week of their holidays.
