    Yoichidake it is. The snow was very crusty that day due to heavy rain a few days earlier. We did find this bit on the way down however. Well done and over to you.

    Many years of heli-skiing in the Wanaka region, including quite a few around Black peak, especially the run known as Escapade off the shoulder to the right of Black peak towards the bluffs.

    That is one of the glaciers. That location has a specific name from the name of the hut the pic was taken from.
