Remarks on the Remarkables, NZ – 09/20/04
Back in NZ for my mates weddin’…
Still winter conditions at the Remarks. Skied the 19th half-day right off the plane and hit up the Alta Chutes for a couple of runs. We had some severe flat light and wind but the snow was super winterized and sick….hike and skied "Diagonalator" with my mate Woody with no tracks and about a foot deep. It slid a little but it was a great way to get off a 24 hour journey.
Today we hit the Remarks again with the sun peaking through the window but as usual a single cloud sat over the Remarks. More flat light, wintery snow, and people in shorts and a T-shirt in Queenstown, it was time to do some skiing.
Brought the digi-cam this time and took some shots, but with the flat light it made life a little difficult.
