The Black Diamond Backcountry Blast ski mountaineering race (part of a greater Black Diamond Backcountry Weekend) is happening on the 30th and 31st of August 2008. We have hugely supportive sponsors (Black Diamond/Southern Approach and Ohau Skifield and Lodge) so things are looking good. Fingers crossed for the weather.
The first priority for many might be accomodation. This is limited at the Lodge itself and some has been reserved for us (10 rooms). It is there on a first in, first serve basis. So if you want to attend the weekend please ring Ohau and make a booking.
I'll try to get more details up on the event in the next week or so.
