NZ 2012 season
 
Kia Ora NZ shredders!

Well things are off to a good start so far, got in 3 good days at Coronet last weekend and another three days off work for the Opening of Remarks tomorrow! :D

Who's riding where this year and on what gear?

I went for a week last year to the remarkables, and going back this year again in aug for another week. Which mountain is suited to who better? If that makes any sense lol.

If you mean coronet vs remarks? Depends what sort of riding you're into; if you're into park or backcountry i'd say remarks but if you want groomers and fast runs then coronet. totally dependent on weather as well though, one peak may be covered in fog while the other across the valley is having a bluebird day!

Cardrona is a good mix of both if you've got a good enough hire car to go over the crown range as well :thumbsup:

Can't say with any certainty mate; last time i was at TC was about 3 or 4 years ago and it was a terrible icy and wet day. From all reports i've had though it can't be beat on a great day. Pretty keen to have a crack this season and Ohau as well.

So this afternoon, i thought id take up my old 63 Burton Floater to Remarks and try a bit of tussock bashing. What a shithouse idea that was, i felt like a fucking learner again! :laugh:

This man^ speaks the truth. It would help me personally too. Have been mauling over living there after college. Although it's my second choice. It's still sounds awesome. And even if I didn't move I would be there during the summer on vacation.

as promised, here's a few pics from today's trip up to my local for a bluebird day following a fresh drop of about 10-15cm's overnight.

obviously we need a bit more coverage to get full access to some of the backcountry areas you can see, but it's only the second week of the season at Remarks with some good weather predicted for this week.

pretty lovely conditions today all the same though! :)
