Well its been a little bit but here are some of the pics from my trip, along with some vids im sure there gonna be a bit of a laugh We ended up doing some boarding at Coronet peak (Day and Night Boarding) went up to the Remarkables and also went to Cardrona. it sucked that it was a complete whiteout up at Cardrona. couldn't see shit. jump on the lift when we get there, just totally covered in frozen ice and couldn't see the ground. once we got to the top we could prob see about 10 metres in front of us, maybe 15 metres. was pretty fucked and i almost went down a closed off black run coz i couldn't see much. haha that woulda been bad...
Had a madd time over there and partied up pretty hard one night, wasnt feeling the greatest the next day though So here are some pics and some vids for ya

Looking out over to Coronet Peak
We walked further up the mountain to where they jump of for the paragliding, this is after walking 15 mins through the forest
We decided we needed to walk up even further, we just wernt high enough
We got a pretty decent view, but it still wasnt high enough in the background is where they jump off for the paragliding.
So more walking through some snow, we so didnt have the right shoes on for the job
Ahh thats better, some unbelievable views up here. well worth the walk
Some more great views
My mate still wanted the "Perfect Shot" so he decided to walk up even more, im pretty sure this was the top for this mountain. You can see my mate at the top, that small little stick figure
The sunset on the mountains with the moon
The Shotover River that we went through on the Shotover Jet Boat, was really narrow but heaps of fun, doing full 360's and all that
Then this is a video of me Snowboarding on the sat night up at Coronet Peak, was a bit harder then i thought it would be Half the time i was going down backwards or on my ass. slowly got the hang of it though. had some massive stacks though and was so fucken sore but unfortunately we didnt get them on camera
haha, that wasnt my very first run it took me an hour to get down this one beginner run at coronet peak! haha yeah didnt get a vid of that one unfortunately but yeah pretty much every 2 metres i was on my ass that run that my mate filmed me on was the main intermediate run
yeah got no pics of me with cristal unfortunately will have to do that another time.
i got heaps more pics, alot from this one massive night out we had i might put them up.... got a few more vids, but not really any more of me snowboarding unfortunately, i wish i got more.
yeah ed lets see ya star in some vids for us , i wanna see ya in action!
fodds man its stunning over there when ya on top of the mountain, it was good just chillin up there taking it all in. air was fresh as fuck as well.i wanna hit NZ back up and do some more boarding but also check out the other parts of the islands as well
haha yeah i wanna head on up there to check it out, even if its not for the snow. well i am doing another overseas trip middle of next year with a mate, still gotta decide where pretty much. we are thinking of hittin up LA and some of Hollywood or something. either that or thailand for a bit or maybe even japan. i think i might be going over to Vietnam at the end of this year as well so its pretty much gotta find time to get over to NZ also gotta get over to Perth to see my sister as i didnt get to see her when she was home as i was over in NZ but when i do hit up Auckland ill let ya know for sure so that we can catch up.
