Canterbury Haute Route

Great trip, needs a bit more exploring to find the easiest line. The last day was the biggest with 3200+ metres climbing (4000 metres down), on top of that I ran the 15km from Bealey Spur back to Arthurs Pass … hmm, no wonder no one wants to ski with me.
In total 3 days, with nights spent at Waimakariri Hut and Barker Hut (thanks CMC). Amazing weather!
The last day was the most amazing with dry powder on all the downhills.
