Goldilocks and the too-early, too-late season – A Leif Zapf-Gilje Whitewater Photo-Essay

Considering I bought a house in Nelson just in time for one of the most epic winters ever here, you’d think this photo-essay would be filled with deep pow shots from up on Whitewater Resort… but I went south for the middle of winter just missing the record storms so instead this is an ode to early and late season with a photo of a hot Brazilian girl in the middle. Aproveite 😉
