One of the local Wanaka policemen turns 40… a keen back country man with a bunch of like minded friends. His fantastic wife shouts him a helicopter trip to the top of black peak and we fill the spare seats…what else would good friends do!

The snow was boot top dry powder over a firm base will no avalanche hazard – so sounds perfect? – IT WAS

Touring gear allowed for a few more laps to ski the good snow, before we needed to tour over toward the treble cone summit ridge.

Birthday boy is flying out to do UN duty in Timor for 6 months so a few photos of his back yard to show the Timor locals and then wobbly tired legs have us skiing down the familiar slopes of Treble Cone to the vehicle and the customary re-hydration(beers).

A very fine day out……thankyou mother nature for supplying the awesome snow, sunshine and good company…
