I'm not really good at posting pictures, but there's a few samples to scroll through. Highly recommend clicking the link.
Anywho, went down to New Zealand and got out of a Canadian Summer to hunt for snow.

Enjoy!

looking a little sharky! But, like most of the clubbies, it's a great spot!

I like Mueller Hut too, easily accessible from Mt Cook village. You're in "gnar" terrain in that area for sure. If you like traverses, Barron Saddle Hut is a day away, when I did it (the opposite way though) it was low tide and there was little riding and a lot of moraine hopping. From Barron Saddle Hut you can either tour back to Mueller or get a chopper out. Sladden Saddle (Pass just below Mt Sealy) on the way to Barron Saddle is a good compromise for a day trip from Mueller.

Awesome TR too, I checked out the link. You guys sure ticked some boxes e.g. Olympus to Craigieburn (or BR) was it? :headbang:
