Sometime around August of 2001 myself and some cobbers headed down to Mt Rhuapehu in the North Island of New Zealand for a little skiing. We had a couple of days on each side of the moutain
The following pictures are from the days spent at Turoa on the Southern side. We also spent a couple of days at Whakapapa.
