1. Hitched to Cardrona this morning and was on the snow by 9:30 to shoot the half pipe and XL jump line with a stunning inversion layer and clouds passing by the light was great for photos, on the blog soon! Rode Captains basin all afternoon dropping cliffs and hitting natural features, absolutely stoked on the fresh snow that fell last night and today, the clouds parted and cleared up for Wanaka on sunset, love this place :)

     

  2. Driving out of the wilderness out past Lake Ohau, this is the real New Zealand you won’t get on a Tiki tour.

     

  3. Sun is out and its a be tiful morning to be at Cardrona, today I’m at top of Valley View chair, prepared with bulk food, music and reading material for the day :)

     

  4. Shan, Rob, Ben and I standing above an Ohau backbowl last weekend, snow conditions weren’t great but it was awesome fun to explore outside the ski field! #lakeohau

     

  5. Jordan and Chizza sitting atop a very large cliff on Mt Iron one glorious morning.

     

  6. Mellow Spring day working with these cool cats down at Valley View chairlift, the mountain is quiet and snow is slushy :) Andy, Sage and Fabian are stoked!

  8. My good friend Brooke and I stayed in a Cardrona apartment for the night, finished work and didn’t even have to leave the mountain, we had beautiful pizza in Mezz cafe then did star photos on the learners carpet until midnight, watched a ski movie and fell asleep in our 3 bedroom apartment. Woke up for sunrise, had a lovely morning stroll and after a coffee i snowboarded off to my chairlift to work for the day, was epic!

     

  9. One fine afternoon spent having a picnic beside the lake with Zac, Rose, Beau and Katie.

     

  10. Once again at the end of my 4 day work week, 2 days off to shred the mountain and get some chillout time, pretty sweet view to sit and unwind after a long day up the mountain, keep the bluebird days coming please mother nature :) #lakewanaka #nofilter

     

  11. Epic morning running the poma lift at the Olympic half pipe, so chilled out having brekky and watching some of the best riders in the world throw down massive tricks. Knocked off after lunch and tried skiing for the first time in a decade, actually picked it up really well I’m so stoked!

     

  12.  Epic views of Lake Wanaka from my backyard.

     

  13. On Monday i hiked solo up Mount Roy, half way up the track i veered off and made my own way up to a peak further north up the ridge, i crawled up steep grassy banks and over shale rock for a couple of hours, at the peak i found a small flat area to hang out at until sunset shooting photographs, eating food and enjoying the solitude. I hiked back down after sunset and hitched back to Wanaka in the total darkness with a funny german man.
