It’s about 5 hours to Wanaka from Canterbury. The drive is breathtaking, and the lakes along the way are arresting

Technically, the fireworks were part of the closing ceremonies for the 2013 New Zealand Winter Games, but whatever. We still felt welcome.

BLISTER is hitting the road and kicking off its North American ski and snowboard review season. We compiled some of our favorite shots from the road this past year, and figured we'd share them as we prepare to do it all over again. Enjoy.
