Welcome to the 2011 winter season…. and so far, we’re calling it the season of powder! Mother nature held off and held off, but last week she dumped like no other season we can remember. Conditions went from zero to all time in a matter of a few days, with 2m+ of fresh snow falling throughout our extensive terrain.
Since our heli ski season opened last week, we’ve had a succession of incredible bluebird powder days with clients making repeat bookings and coming back for more! With such epiiic coverage our guides and clients have been able to ski to the valley floor. Two of our guides, Roachy and Russell skied to the valley floor from the Motatapu Ridge near Wanaka, for the first time in over 30 years!
