Quick update from the weekend! had the last day of winter on sat and boy was the snow amazing. The Ruapehu team had it going for them as they opened up High Noon around noon with winds blowing at 40kph+.
My gloves froze every time going up high noon as they had it going much much slower than normal and best of all, there were no lines for it!

Wind blown powder everywhere with deep pockets in places - ducked out by vertigo had some great stuff. Truly the first time I have enjoyed making turns!!

Managed to take a huge fall on my last run, no idea what happened - didn't feel anything catch or hit anything but started falling and landed right on my goggle, the only impact was right on the corner of my face.

Also managed to land my very first 180s of a tiny jump!!

No pics this time
