Views from The Remarkables, Queenstown

On 22nd September we spent a day enjoying spring skiing at The Remarkables.  The field was within two weeks of  closing for the season, however there was still a good coverage of snow.  The day was sunny and calm, allowing some spectacular views from the access road.
