It’s been an amazing few days in New Zealand, thanks to a once-in-a-lifetime polar freeze that brought snow to parts of NZ that haven’t seen snow since who knows when.

After a few days of intense weather, which kept most of the resorts closed, the skies cleared a little and made way for some incredible riding.
