Updates from Fox

Fox Glacier sits along the Alpine fault and adjacent to the greatest mountains in the Southern Alps.  Memorably filmed in The Lord of the Rings third movie as they set fire to the beacon lights across the mountains.  This has been my life for the last 7 months and now, once again, life will take a change of course.  On May 25, Kat and I will be traveling via Sydney to Singapore and on to the greater Malaysian peninsula for a little relaxation in the sun.  After this excursion into Southeast Asia we return to Mt Cheeseman for a few more months of snowboarding. As excited as I am for this new adventure I cant help recounting my time here in Fox and seeing as I have been rather lacking in my updates here is a quick look back at Fox, my job, and my parent's visit to New Zealand.  There have been many fantastic moments during my time here but few that hold the same importance for me as when my parents came to visit me and the first time I had seen them in 18 months.
