Default New Zealand 2014 Season!

Figured we should get this rolling with the snow starting to pack on! Still a lot of trails being made in the north though.

Had my first excursion to Ruapehu last week as we were expecting some good weather.

Wednesday was bad with rain, snow and freezing gusts. Goggles froze to my helmet after one run.



Thursday was a nice bluebird day. Excuse the Xbox bottle as these were the only pictures I took.

<3 Ruapehu! Which side were you on?

I'm waiting for it to get closer to 2m base before I head up.

Leaving for Wanaka on Thursday so will take some pics

Wed, Friday, Sat at Turoa. Thursday at Whakapapa.
For Turoa, the only mid mountain trail open at the moment is bone yard so EVERYONE funnels into there leading to absolute chaos.
Whakapapa is quite good right now so if you have the urge I'd head that way.

Sweet! let us know how it goes.

Out west at Whakapapa has always been a favourite, but it seems there is a lot more base at Turoa.

Coming from Wellington Whakapapa adds too much time on my round trip
