Skied for two weeks straight at Treble Cone - a great mountain with two big bowls and excellent side country. Conditions ranged from windblown pow and sheet ice peaks to some good powder sprinkled chutes.and largish moguls. I have a heap more POV vids I shot there but will need to edit them down. Will post more soon Takes a while to load.
hellyer posted a topic in Snow talk, trip reports, Japan avalanche & backcountryOK, I have cruised through previous threads and started to gather details on who's going where for the 11/12 season. I figure it would be easier for folks to hook up with other SJ'ers (if they want to) if the details were all in one place. Thank you to previous thread starters and to a poster on another forum whose layout I have shamelessly copied (thanks Smitty) This list is just the start so please feel free to add names, dates, edit or change your details by posting on this thread and I will keep it updated regularly.

Not really a Trip Report, just a few pics taken on my phone. The indoor ones are of the Wanaka Transport Museum - one of the most interesting and complete collection I have seen. Spent 3 hours there easily. Doubly amazing in that it is such a small community.
