Queenstown Snow Cats

This was definitely the funnest day of my Southern Hemi Winter so far. With such a rad crew, I knew it would be a blast no matter what. Rachael Oakes-Ash, aka Miss Snow it All from theSydney Morning Herald was there to document our adventure, with Camilla Stoddart taking photos and Jase Hancox logging all the action on film.

The trip was based around two sets of sisters aiming large in the snow industry; Nat and myself from Australia and Janina and Maria Kuzman from NZ.

We met the Queenstown Snow Cats team, located in Kingston, 40 minutes out of Queenstown early in the a.m. to run through safety briefings and our schedule. We were then surprised with a heli ride up to our stomping ground for the day- obviously this was not your usual cat skiing operation.

Once we were up in the mountains it was time to play! We spent the day jumping off stuff, scoping lines and generally just shredding the gnar.

Before we knew it, we were being ushered back into the heli and flown back to reality.

Such an epic day with a bunch of inspirational people. Much love to Queenstown Snow Cats andRachael Oakes Ash for putting this all together. For the full story on the day, stand by for the northern season mags and Channel Nine in Australia (July 2012) for the one hour TV snow special.
