Third attempt to ski tour Mt Pisa, Central Otago, NZ

Why Mt Pisa? Well I’ve been up to it’s gentle summit a few times either walking or by 4wd, but I’ve never skied it before, and now I want to, and do it alone! The landscape is immense, and I want to feel how small I am in it and to be overwhelmed [well not too much!] and humbled by the experience. Being alone means maximum uptake of what is going on in the moment, and actually a trip like this demands being in the present, and being at one with it all, including one’s self!

As I close writing this post, the weather forecast for the next two days includes snow down to 300 meters! It looks like I’ll have another several weeks yet of ski touring opportunities on the Pisa range.
