Heading back to the Otago Country and getting into the Remarkables

After a long night of hitch hiking and getting onto the first plane avalible I was heading back to the South Island and meeting up with my friend Adam Flemming.

Looking at the Canturbury covered in new snow

With all the new snow we decided to head up to the Remarkables to enjoy some Mid November powder conditions.

Luckily the groomers had just enough of a snowpack that we were able to skin all the way up to the goods.Tad bit quiet up there

Looking pretty good

From the summit ridge we took in the views of Lake Wakatipu and the greater Queenstown area.

Tad bit of an awesome view

So many mountains such little time

So that's why they call it the Remarkables

The snow was quite heavy but it was still really good.

For our second run we decided to check out the Alta Lake chutes and see finish our trip off with a another South facing run.

Looking back towards our first run

As it would turn out this was by far the best run I had in the Remarkables as season.

South Facing Pow laps, only in the Southern Hemisphere

Both Adam and I were stoked on the goods and the fact we were still getting faceshots in November. We decided to end the day on a highnote and after the second lap we were back down to Queenstown and enjoying the sunshine and I was prepping for my next trip up the Reese Valley.

Soo good I could almost go for another
