Love the pic, thanks for the input, much appreciated!! Yeah NZ is a two hour flight for me and cost is very minimal, I could go a few times over the season for a weekend here and there. Was mainly interested in SA coz, well, from what I've read so far and that great pic you posted, the pow there is tops!
Not really that interested in exploring in SA, that place seems as you say sketchy. Straight to the pow for me
have to decide where in SA is best, I wont be there in the school holiday period so I hope that it wont be so busy. I'm thinking Bariloche or Valle Nevado in Chile.
