And the weather wins :-(

With the front rider in Wanaka a call had to be made on the risk and the route. With 20cm of fresh snow on Cardrona Skifield (which is below the summit of the Pisa Range) and forecast 90kph wind, it would be heavy and serious going.

So the call has been made to switch to the Alternate Leg 4 Wanaka to Cromwell:
