I have just realised that the past few posts were a wee bit mardy, so heres something slightly happier.
Ive just been reading a blog by an American snowboarder,Colin Boyd, who is kind of an adopted kiwi. He spends a lot of time out in Wanaka and is pretty well known. He's been killing it on the Freeride World Tour this year and finished 4th overall. Check out his line in Alaska, complete with the genius that is Ed Leigh commentating.
He's produced a really well made webisode series on freeride in New Zealand. If anyone wants to know what the terrain is like out there then check out the edits, it makes me stoked to be going back to that incredible country..........that and the Afghan biscuits!
Terje Haakenson said that if he had to choose one place to snowboard for the rest of his life then it would be Temple Basin, one of New Zealands club fields.........pretty big endorsement right there!
