Sub Par Skier S2 E2

First 2 days on snow for 2014!

After a pre-season filled with rain, we finally got a massive dump of snow! This allowed us to finally get up for a few days. Day 1 was bluebird with good coverage, but not much open, meaning we hiked up to get the best snow. Which was a good choice! Day 2 was high winds, creating some pockets of fun snow, with variable conditions, which forced an early closing that day. It ended up being a great way to start the season! Here’s looking forward to the rest!

Sub Par Skier S2 Episode 3

Interesting few days on the mountain….

Started with a good day skiing with my wife and daughter, then had a “skiing by braille” experience, then had a super fun day that ended with one of the biggest crashes I’ve had in the past 10 or so years. It was still good times! What can I say? I LOVE SKIING!!

Music: Poison Nothin’ But A Good Time


Sub Par Skier S2 E4

Finally got to tick off another bucket list item. Chris Dews and I hiked and skied Mt. Ngauruhoe and Tongariro, completing my mission to ski all of the 4 major volcanoes in the North Island. After a cold night sleeping in the van, I awoke to a perfect day for a hike. The snow had melted quite a bit in the past week, but it meant for great corn skiing! 5 hours to the summit, and 8 hours return to the carpark. Great day and good company!
