The weather has kind of been in limbo for the last month, with it being too wet to ride and an early snowfall with has melted off a bit. We still managed to get out and do some early ski touring with a few bites from ski sharks destroying a bit of ski bases. A good tune needed.
The rest of our work is still being held up waiting for publications so here is some b-roll shots from some ski tour missions while we still had enough snow. An first warmup of the legs into Broken River and the second from Mt Potts and the old defunct Erewhon Ski Field
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.
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:
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.
