    Well today marks day 20, Lochie had another awesome weekend skiing at Cardrona and catching up with more of his mates from the Cardrona crew, I asked Lochie what’s been the best bit so far he said meeting new friends if you see him about make sure you come and say hi.

    The highlight of his weekend was meeting his favourite NZ skier Nico Porteous, it made his day Lochie was amped after catching up with him.
