Snow trip in NZ

Saturday, July 25, 2009
It was now - or never! Woke to a absolute stunning blue sky day - frosty to be sure! I wanted to do this snow trip in nz this last Monday when the snow levels in NZ were lower then today (had 3 days of warm winds blowing over the alps since last Monday) - alas at the time I ended up cleaning the house for ages. So it had to be today - before everything melted away. It was worth it!! After a quick breakfast and clean up - we were on the road! I guess the pictures speak for themselves . . .
