    Pretty clear in Wanaka also. Good skiing in the North Buchanans in the well known sheltered areas but North Harris apparently badly wind affected.

    Great shots Ozgirl!
    (Hoping to post a selection too now I have home Internet at last!)

    By the way, we were on Cardi on Tuesday - it's possible we saw your jet pass overhead. There's several a day so it's not an uncommon sight.

    LOL

    Love those two last post.

    Currently sitting in the apartment with a knee brace on. Suspected ACL and ACL rupture.

    A wicked day until the run after lunch and a hilarious rescue story. With video to boot.

    That sucks! Hope the recovery is a speedy one.

    A few pics from my recent trip, first time to QT 31/07 to 8/08 and had a blast despite the lack of snow early in the trip.

    The place is a picture postcard everywhere you look. Our view from our apartment and the spa was especially rewarding at the end of each day.

    Pretty standard for lower limb.

    Hard to get into economy seat with brace and high dvt risk.
