Snow, snow and more snow! Both Tūroa and Whakapapa have been blessed by the Snow Gods, with several storms rolling through the country leaving the mountain with awesome snow coverage and great bases to work with! There is still more snow in the forecast. Who's going to be here for the first bluebird day and all this fresh snow??!!

The annual Skiwis weekend was once again a fun filled weekend. Despite the threat of rain and fire drills the kids had a great time with some wet skiing and a first ride up the Sky Waka for most. We retreated to the club where the kids built a formidable base from which to defend the club against roaming kids from other clubs. Despite the call of the Rangatira battle horn no adversaries showed up, kind of like the All Blacks failed to show later that night. The weather worsened and the racing was called off on Sunday but everyone left with bellies full of pizza, faces full of whipped cream and new friendships to last a lifetime.
