Should do some boarding this year.

Both the boy and I both board and his family have a lodge they charge $10 a night for us to use (covers power/insurance/rates etc) and it sleeps about 14 with a couple in the lounge.
Good times if your after cheap mountain accomodation as its right near the base.

We will be heading up at least half a dozen times if anyone else is keen to go up?

used to ski alot as a kid, tried boarding a couple of times, haven't hit the snow in a few years now though and I've been keen to get back into skiing but when the winters are so good I'd rather be biking!

Been boarding since 1994. Usually get in about 20+ days each winter. More into backcountry riding these days - untracked powder, chutes and steeps. Mt Hutt sucks, go to temple basin, craigieburn, ohau and treble cone.

Meating sounds quite fun but not sure about doing it with blokes.

Its on the same theme really, I love it when it's crap weather I look forward to Snowboarding and Riding when the weather bucks up. I have a Burton floater and an old Libtech board that I inherited. Snowboarding in soft bindings is nice because you can walk to the bar like a normal punter.

Aye? I am in chch, and so is JohnnyC. We go to MT.Hutt. Mt.Hutt has a mountain bike snow race there (you mountain bike down a hill with snow as your surface) And I am saying that I will race Johnny down on his bike while I on my Skiis. :thumbsup:

Hey coyote , when is this race your talking about , it sounds real mint . I hope they have another dualthlon like they did at Traeble cone where you ski down to the access road , and then take the dh trail to the bottom.
