The Harro Files – Australian Special

January 30th, 2009


Skiing in Australia has a special uniqueness about it. We not always have the best snow, the highest mountains, the biggest hype, but what we sure don’t lack in is the ability to have exhilarating skiing and boarding on any given day. I’ve had some of my most fun days ever of my life skiing here.

Heres a few photos taken at Perisher last winter. I’ll be up there again for a few days this week, kick starting a season long project shooting in Australia and New Zealand. Just about every day this winter I’ll be posting images on that were shot that day. Keep an eye for the World Heli Challenge update too, that is being fully covered by as news comes to hand.

Check back every week on Mountainwatch for a new episode of the “Harro Files”.
