Taking The Piste

CHILLFACTOR 2008: Rachael Oakes-Ash
Our Southern Lakes Heli guide, Jeremaia Fisk, was only too happy to help get us to the chutes we wanted, dropping the athletes at the mouth of the chute and guiding myself and our photographer, Camilla Stoddart , down to suitable vantage points. After days of watching World Heli Challenge competitors steal the lines that were in my head it was good to finally be out on the snow. While we saved the best bits for Ted and Maria, Camilla and I managed to score some good pow of our own on some seriously edible terrain.
