… yes it is possible to ski in Australia. I knew it but it still seemed so unreal. I am a living proof of it actually happening because I just went to Perisher Valley for the weekend.
It was the best of both worlds of skiing. A bluebird day and a powder day. I hadn’t skied in almost a year and a half and had to get in to it again. It did not take long. A few runs in and I felt great. Kinda like riding a bike!
I went with Tat and her boyfriend Matt. We were a group of 7 in total. All someone Tat and Matt knew but all really great people. Andrea, Loretta, Bella and Mark. I was the seventh wheel but did not feel like it at all! They were so nice and kind and made me feel like I was more than welcome and a part of the group. Felt good!
We arrived late Friday and went straight to bed basically. Saturday was spend on the hill all day and dinner down at the Station where we stated. Sunday we woke up to freezing cold and the snow starting coming down. Where we stayed was about 45 min away from the ski hill and there was no snow when we got there but within 30 min of it snowing the ground was covered with a beautiful layer of snow.
… and then there was a group of kangaroos! They were jumping around in the snow. Gorgeous and so strange to see them in the snow.
On the hill Sunday it was a great powder day and I did as much skiing I could. After so long of not skiing, two days of ski boots killed me and I called it a day but I did pretty good!
I was in my right element. Snow, mountains and cold surrounded by great people – made me feel better then I have in a long time!
I will keep it to only 20 photos this time! or at least try.
