We decided to head somewhere different even though they didn’t receive much snow from the last storm that blasted the Southern part of the island. Some early morning groomers to some variable off-piste was the name of the game.
The Hotel Cat was SO ADORABLE!
On the way up, the Canterbury Plains….
The Mountain abuzz with life…
Long Board Day already??????
View from the Summit…
Another view of where sheep live…..
These are mountains behind the mountain where the picture was taken….
Great views all-around….
The rutt slayage begins…..666 begins from the backseat…
Woody makes his patented ‘4 edge carve’…but without gloves or hat….
Seanyob rolls some over…
Kiwis – Can never take skiing seriously…..
Tak IS NOT original….
666 below the Towers…
Sheepdog slays some wind-buffed love….
Someone say COFFEE BREAK?
666’s long lost Kiwi cousin was present….
Sheepdog burning off some edge rust…
666 finds a Ruby in a haystack….
Woody’s dad showed up for a couple laps…
Sheepdog scores some wind deposited FRESH!!!!
666 makes a glaciated carve….
…but too bad its in the backseat like this guy racing on the same day….
Obligatory Tussock line…
A carve turn on a sunny face…
But again, he’s copying this guy…
He did manage to find some marshmellowy fluff…
And then its a rush to the cafe…..
Slaves to the Snow….
Many countries represented at this week’s events…..
Tak, however, has a favorite in mind….
Rockered SuperG skis, the new trend…
Rockered or not, this guy will eat them….
Spring has sprung in New Zealand…
Time to Chill….
Time to read the local tabloid rag in front of an old building…
Kiwi ski shop…
Prime location for apres ski….
Here in New Zealand, a flat white looks like this….
…with milk from these guys just down the road…
The meat doesn’t taste too shabby either….
Apres ski hilltop drive to shoot photos instead of animals….(which we were ever so politely told not to do)
Apres Ski continues at the Blue Pub…
Skiing makes you thirsty…
They serve it cold here….
We had Japanese. Yes, we ate Tak for dinner….
But before that, I stole these shots off his memory card from earlier in the night…
Methven Indoor Skate Park….
Woody tried to sign up, but they were closed…
Last shot = no comment….
