Im in Auckland for winter so we decided to get a crew together and try score Mt Ruapehu. We had an awesome crew of Bevan, Gemma and Jazzy who drove up from Wellington. With Laura and I driving down from Auckland. I have never managed to score good snowboarding in the North Island but on the Sunday it was perfect blue skies and the snow was epic! We had an absolute blast riding with a good crew, launching off the natural hits and sending it off some cliffs. I was amazed at how fun Turoa was and look forward to getting back down there again!
