2005 – Queenstown – New Zealand


In 2005, Discovery Snow Tours trekked back to Queenstown, New Zealand for the third time. Unlike 2004, this trip focused more on the mountains in the Wanaka district, with Treble Cone and Cardrona being the primary targets.

On more than one occasion we had to ski the bottom section of Treble Cone while ski patrol 'bombed' the top section for avalanche protection. Some serious overnight snowfalls made this trip memorable. A few decent turns were still put in at Coronet Peak and The Remarkables.
