August Update

Its been a bit slow on the updates as I have been doing some different commercial work which I can’t post yet! In the meantime here are some shots from a few sunrise missions we have been on to snag some NZ powder goods. Mt Olympus aka the playground of the gods put it on for an epic powder day.

Bit of a test of the Peak Designs Capture Plate while enjoying the snow at Mt Olympus.

Checking out the recently revamped step up at the local bikes trails when they were finally dry enough to ride, I got the flashes out and took a couple of MTB shots. Was good to get some external lighting out as I haven’t shot that style of photo for a while.

June Photo Epic

Its time for another photo epic for the month, showing some of what we have been up to. We started off last month with a bit of a weather change and some early snow fall but in the subsequent weeks there was plenty of wind and no more snow so even with eh cool temps what had remained had become pretty crispy. So we dragged the bikes back out and headed up to check out the #mintlyndon track that everyone had been talking about and what a track it is. Check out some photos from the mission below:

Christchurch itself has had the gloomiest June on record with low fog and an epic amount of rain. So with the mission above being our only sunny ride this month it was countdown on until the ski fields started opening and more snow fell. It looks like Queenstown and the Kaikoura ranges have been getting more snow than Canterbury so far and a storm is just rolling in now. But we headed up to the Mt Lyford Opening day and it was a beauty. Check out the photos from that below:

 

May Update

Its been a month or so since we last posted but we have had a busy month and the weather is starting to change to winter here in NZ so the bike content will slow down for a bit.

Major project for the month was filming a new video for the Christchurch Adventure Park to showcase how much of an epic spot they have there!

Check it out below:

We also went and shot a pile of photos up there as my bike has been broken!

Check them out below:

Last but not least as I mentioned earlier in this post the weather is changing and winter is kicking in, so we ventured out for a look and got some powdery goodness. There is only one photo from the day as it was to good to stop but check it below:

Winter Hits Again

Well its been a while since I have posted, the old day job has been getting in the way and we have been stuck in a little bit of limbo with the weather, hasn’t really been summer or winter. However this last weekend winter struck back with a vengeance and we had possibly the best 3 days skiing I have ever had in NZ. Check out some of the photos below from Craigieburn on the Sunday.

I got a bit too involved for the first couple of days of the storm before I pulled the camera out! Enjoy!

One Run Down The Tarn

I thought I would give my new Loose Riders beanie a good test and headed up to Mt Cheeseman Ski Area on Saturday after the decent storm that rolled through. It definitely kept my head warm! Check out one run down the Tarn in some Christchurch & Canterbury NZ freshies, click HD… Licence to Chill… And you can check the beanies here: https://www.looseriders.co.nz/coll…/…/products/pom-pom-black

Ohau Opening Weekend

The weather has been a bit hit and miss in ChCh lately and mostly too wet to ride bikes, but there was a storm that came through and heaved some fresh pow on Lake Ohau Lodge and Ohau Snow Fields so we headed up there for opening weekend and smashed some laps and made this little instavid, which you can check below as well as a couple of photos from the mission. Ohau is off to a banger start with 7ocms falling over the course of 24 hours so if your looknig for a place to ski head there this week.
