Springy Backcountry


So after a lazy morning, quickly coordinated a session with Will J to go up to Cardies. A bit of traverse, a bit of walking and there we are, Will J scoping the options. The snow was really wierd, from ice to sugar. Careful with those landings oi!.


After droping into some icy landings, it was time to build some stuff. Here’s Will hiking a little bit more to get a little bit more of speed for that kicker.


Shots and shovels in the bag, time to go back. Not before getting some soul shreding after the resort is closed and nobody is on the slopes.


Get – Some – Powder!!!!


Went up to Cardis after a big storm. It was on. By 9:30 everything was tracked and full of people. In the pic, Tim Pierce filming for another NZsnowboard.tv episode. You can check it out here.


So after all the in bound lines were done, Joram and I went into the side country to get some shots. Robett and crew joined for a while.


Few shots in the bag, time for some good old fun. The crew hitting the start of the Boardercross track as a QP. Hahaha, that trainer was so off it!!!!
