A birthday, a facelift AND a new adventure!

Sanctuary Snow recently turned two! Can you believe it?? I certainly can’t!   What began as a a side project documenting my foray into splitboarding quickly grew into a driving force in my life! Over the last two years I’ve invested time, and money, upgraded gear and pushed my riding, I’ve dropped dollars on a […]

Splitboard Sunday : Doolans edition

Spending the day in the Doolans with my love and my splitboard under the most perfect bluebird sky was incredible.

Splitboard Season : OPEN

Splitboard Season : OPEN

  The last week inched by slowly, with the promise of snowfall to sea-level forecast for much of the lower south island all eyes were focussed squarely on the weather radars while we eagerly counted down the days.

Splitboarding is for Summer

Splitboarding is for Summer

Summer definitely isn’t my favourite season…are you surprised?! Of course not. In the past few years after ditching back to back winters and grounding ourselves firmly in Queenstown. I’ve learnt to enjoy the things that summer has to offer. Long days spent soaking up the sun, abundantly green veggie gardens, long sweaty hikes, swimming in […]

Winter Wrap Up

Winter Wrap Up

Summer is officially here, so it’s probably time to look back on the winter that was. I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a few weeks now but honestly, I wasn’t ready to let winter go just yet! Even mother nature isn’t quite ready to let it go either, providing a sweet little dusting […]
