Summer on the South Island Ski Fields – 08/30/05
Its REALLY warm here….in my past 6 years of coming here to ski, I’ve never worn shorts and a T-shirt in the middle of the winter. We even ended up playing a couple holes of golf. Today was that day. Some weather may move in, probably rain, but we may end up trying to get some scenic heli-skiing around Mt. Cook just to do something different.
Some NZ stoke from today….the south facing chutes were still the best bet for a chance of winter snow, pretty firm but grippy enough to edge and have fun.

Alta Chutes…again, best snow on the hill:
