This picture was taken in 1993 at Lake Clearwater in New Zealand. Peter is out on the ice with a Peel.

These pictures below were taken just a few days ago at the same place. Peter and his son went out for R and R. He had this to say afterwards:


Some areas of NZ are reporting the coldest temps since records have been kept- 139 years in one case. There’s excellent ice (85mm to 100mm) at lake Clearwater, has been for 3 weeks- but not much wind yesterday, and was a bit overcast- which is unusual there at this time of year.

Pete and I had the lake pretty much to ourselves.
