Mt Ruapehu


On the weekend I went down to Mt Ruapehu with the FTB crew who run a snowboarding camp down there. I was asked to go down as a photographer to get snaps of the guys and girls on the camp. Having only skied on the mountain before it was also a chance to give snowboarding a go, despite being on my bum half the time I still found it really enjoyable and can’t wait to give it another go! The camp was packed with lots of action including snowboarding, skating, going to the hot pools, watching movies, playing lots of playstation and shredding on a home made jib. It was epic and everyone had an amazing time, check out some of the pics below:
