Adventures on Mt Ruapehu

After eventually getting ourselves together after a fun morning in the fresh snow fall, we ventured up the mountain road to the Turoa skifields. A whopping 25cm of fresh, soft powder fell overnight, and were treated to some pretty amazing conditions.

Also, a BIG shout out to Dean @ Ballistics, who kindly gave us all our snow gear for the weekend! Check out their awesome range of Snowboards, Wakeboards & more in their Takapuna store.
