Despite the large amounts of snow still left in the mountains it is time to move onto other activities. For head pilot Philip Todhunter it is time to bring his sheep down from the high country for shearing. “Icebreaker ” buys some of Philips wool so when you buy your next garment check the code to see which high country station it came from. After shearing the sheep are put back into the high country until the Autumn muster. By then the first snows should have arrived and we will be back preparing for another heliski season.
