Awesome Snow & Sun - Special Days at Hanmer































Went up the Hanmer Springs Ski Field yesterday and took these fantastic photos - what a day - brilliant sunshine, no crowds (less than 20 people all day), friendly helpful staff and great snow. Obviously still some powder pockets from last weeks storm to play in.

Bacardi Cup another huge event!



What a great Barcadi Cup party everyone had up the ski field on the day / night of Sat 6th August. Divided into 4 teams and fortified by Barcadi, the contestant's braced the blizzard outside in fancy dress costumes and were put through their paces by the Hanmer Springs Ski Area staff. Along with a santa, clowns, school girls, prison escapees and a transvestite in fishnets, contestant's braved the elements while they hunted around trying to find bottles of barcadi & coke, hidden around the ski field!



Thanks to Sam and the kitchen crew for the endless delicious homemade pizzas (and to Brian & Nico for donating the lamb). A big thanks to Winnie Bagoes, Ferrymead for kindly donating some Barcadi. Also Ben Savill, Margo, Sarah and the rest of the committee and staff for looking after us all so well, to Steve Van Beek for sorting the sounds and lastly a HUGE thank you to everyone who came up to support Hanmer Springs Ski Area. It's such a great event and without the support of everyone involved we wouldn't be able to keep the tradition alive.
