I like to snowboard as much as possible! I'm found most weekends on the slopes of Ruapehu.

This was going to be my opening day post for Turoa on Saturday 19th June 2010, however RAL opened a couple of days earlier. So I missed opening *day*, but saving my annual leave days for sometime later in the season...
I've had a rather busy spring and thus haven't posted in a while... Spring 09 saw winter (and SNOvember) reappear. Turoa, at Mt Ruapehu, will be open til November the 8th, so make the most of it and eek out some last turns.
The tour of the Southern Fields continues... and winter pays a visit, finally.
More from the road... Avalanches, warm temps, and not a frost on the car, what is up with winter?!
I feel kinda bad for not writing anything last week as the last weekend of the school holidays was spent nice and dry indoors - but this weekend just gone was bluebirds and more than made up for it... especially for a weekend warrior like myself.
It’s been a good week for the first week of the school holidays – open all week with some freshies to boot.
On the drive down we heard on the radio that the severe storm alert/warning (or whatever it was) had lifted just as quickly as it was put in place - gotta love NZ weather!
