  South Island Gallery / Skiing / 2014-09 Skiing Cragieburns and Rolleston  


Paul and I spent the 2014 ski season in Arthur's pass--powder every day for 6 days! We skiied off the low peak of Rolleston, near Cragieburn skifield, and along the length of the Craigieburn range. Over 11km vertical in a week!
