1. Nat Segal and Hanna Fisher, two bad-ass Australian freeriders, are 'Sending the Ditch' and taking on the Freeride World Qualifier Series in New Zealand.
    Nat from Melbourne and Hanna from Sydney, met as teenagers while meandering through the Australian mogul scene. Both lost interest and found themselves in Europe competing on the Freeride World Tour Qualifier Series in 2010 - their aim - qualifying for the Freeride World Tour.
    The next year they parted ways; Hanna headed back to Europe and Nat followed the snow to Utah to compete on the US Freeskiing World Tour.
    After two winters apart, their paths finally crossed once again. This is their story..
    Chapter 2: The Chill Series
    Finally free from the nine to five, Hanna made her way to the Canterbury Clubfields. There she met up with Nat and the freerider family who had swooped down on Mt Olympus for the 2012 K2 Big Mountain Chill Series. The Chill Series is a 4-day marathon big mountain competition held over two clubfields (Mt Olympus and Cragieburn) in which the winner takes all! While the snow was, at times, quite variable, the girls were blessed with four days straight of clear skies and competition. It was a fierce battle for the top spot, by their rankings over the four days Nat and Hanna drew for first place. The judges took their top three scores to decide the overall ranking leaving Nat in 1st and Hanna in 2nd, the Australian domination of the comp scene over the ditch continues.
    Despite overwhelming issues with technology (freeriders still have difficultly using Final Cut), a busy competition schedule and one too many after parties Nat and Hanna finally produced Chapter 2. Stay tuned for the next episode where Nat and Hanna wander back to Wanaka for some backcountry turns, the NZ Freeski Open and a few no pants runs at Treble Cone.

    Chapter 1: The World Heli Challenge
    While Hanna slaved away in a Sydney office, Nat jetted over to New Zealand to compete in the 2012 World Heli Challenge - 2 weeks full of helicopters, powder snow and ripping freeriders. Though the weather did not cooperate for the first week of the Challenge, Nat found many fun things to do in the mountains around Wanaka and friends to play with in the snow. Finally the clouds parted - it was on like Donkey Kong. After two solid heli-accessed days of riding, Nat took out the women's ski overall. Two solid days of heli accessed riding later, Nat finished the week as the Overall Womens' ski champion- that's what sending the Ditch is all about!

  3. Sam Lee and I headed up to Montana for the Freeskiing World Qualifiers last month. It was an awesome trip, an amazing comp and my first win on the FWT circuit. After the comp I spent a day or two in Bozeman, checked out Bridger Bowl and got my ass whipped by a sled. At least I can now say I know how to ride pancake, mexican and canadian on a sled.

    Song: The Strokes, Someday. Thanks Roy and Christina for the inspiration.

  5. This event was totally an utterly surreal- every part of it. The amazing places we visited, the ridges we shredded, the heli rides and the people who made it happen. It was one, big, crazy dream. Thank-you everyone who supported me so I could be apart of the World Heli Challenge. It inspired me for the rest of the my NZ season and made me learn unteachable lessons on and off snow.
