Take a walk!

The helicopter will get you most places but every now and again to get a good line you have to do some hiking! That’s spring! some great terrian that we don’t normally ski is now possible and we have perfect corn snow from top to bottom. Powder is over rated!
Lots of action today in our mountains with regular guest Terry Jackson climbing Mt Arrowsmith with guide Phil Penny while guide Tim Robertson has been guiding a ski touring group on the Cameron glacier!Above the Rakaia 2

Great skiing at the moment, we have had a great week of skiing powder and corn. The last 5 days have provided good powder in the morning until the sunny slopes warm for the corn in the afternoon. The weather looks on the change and we are hoping for another day skiing tomorrow before some more snow and then another cycle of powder skiing later in the week.
