After 20 hours on an airplane, 8 hours of airport layover, and 6 hours drive time, I’m FINALLY on a ski slope! Friday, I hit The Remarkables outside of Queenstown, NZ. You can see from the pic the views here are unbelievable. The temperature was perfect….about 10 Celsius except when I was on top of the mountain. The wind was blowing pretty good at times which cooled things off nicely.
The pic of me was taken by a couple from, of all places, Golden Colorado. Since I’m from Parker, CO, it’s pretty ironic to travel 8000 miles only to meet some people who live 50 miles away from me.
Below is a pic of the back bowl I skied down. This ended up in a gulch along side the roadway back to the resort, but a transport bus picks people up along the way. Nice of them to do that! And a pic from the balcony of the resort. Not a bad view to enjoy a beer on a Friday afternoon!
