|En route to Arthur's Pass|
|The gravel road access to the ski field|
By lunchtime we were just getting up to speed so had a quick lunch and headed out onto the slopes again.

In the afternoon we were a bit more adventurous going gradually bit by bit higher up the mountain and skiing down to the bottom until we made it to the top. The views were worth coming up for if nothing else.

The ski from the top to the bottom was fab, the snow perfect from the top to half way down.
On our way down we noticed all the ski-lifts had stopped and there was no-one else on the piste!!! We had been overtaken by everyone, thankfully the ski-rental was still open.
From the ski-field we drove back through Springfield where we had stayed last night to Ashley Gorge near Oxford.

At the campsite we were pre-warned of the muddy conditions but still managed to get the campervan stuck and had to be pulled out!!!
It does mean that we cannot get near enough to a power socket without getting stuck so we are in for a cold night!!
