Update 5 Dec 2011

The guides have started to help us get organized for the season - Seb is testing all of the new transceivers, Kauri has mounted bindings on all the new Rossignol, Salomon, and Blizzard skis, Julian (conveniently, also an electrician), has our new generator all wired up at the shed, and Carey and Tyson arrived bearing a truckload of bamboo poles for road-building season.

Kieren and I went up for a bit of a ski tour to check out the area, and it was great to get out, but we will need a bit more snow to give some more options for skiing down.  The snow was about a metre deep, and quite consolidated, without a lot of ski penetration.  Great for covering up buried logs and other hazards, but it'll be better skiing when there's a nice layer of light soft snow on top of it.  All good though, since we don't have scheduled cat skiing trips until after Christmas.  (We'll be sure to show you when it comes!)  The video below shows what it's like up there at the moment:
