The final day of YES NZ 2014 brought us blue skies and more good skiing. The Saddle was skiing great with good groomers on South Ridge and Saddleback. The snow was still skiing great in the gullies with soft snow brought in from the wind. The groups all had a great day getting in the last of the challenges. Payback, Gunbarrel and Superpipe all offered that final test. Another great week full of numerous incidents like: chair mis-loads, long slides down gullies, near misses, temper tantrums etc. As always a big thanks to Chris for getting up and down the hill safely. This years adventure was over far too soon and we look forward to doing it all again next year. Safe trip home and we'll see you on the slopes again soon.

until next year……..
A quick note to relect on what a great 2 weeks it was. When Chris came to pick us up at Queenstown, snow conditions were sketchy at best. By the time we came back over the Crown Range it was snowing so intensely we almost had to put chains on. That set us up for a great two weeks at Treble Cone. Fast forward to the Saturday of our departure and the news was that the Saddle Quad had broken down and they were evacuating people off the chair. Which meant that they then had to hike out back to Home Basin. So to re-cap, YES arrives and brings the snow. YES leaves and the whole place falls apart. Coincidence??????
