A shot from the archives today. Ohakune Ski Field.
Shot on my old Samsung Galaxy 3, I recall we were getting a bite to eat after I had managed to tumble ski my first time down the mountain. As we sat the clouds came in and the snow began falling. Some ran inside for shelter, the rest of us donned our hoods and continued on with what we were doing.
I still remember my first time in the snow – well into my teens, it was somewhere we never when whilst I was a child. The soft crunch under my feet was somehow very familiar.
I’ve still only been a good handful of times, which is a shame being its a half day trip in the car to get to. I guess one of the problems is finding reasonably priced accommodation thats not miles away from the ski fields.
Still, last season was my first go at skis…next time I will try a snowboard – possibly a more skateboard familiar option!
Oooo fabulous photo! Aye, arg, I hope you enjoy snowboarding. I did snow-boarding for eight years when we lived in a temperate northern climate- Florida, no snow, but some excellent waves to surf now and then. Beautiful photo- extremely nostalgic for me, being an avid lover of the snow, missing it so. Cheers,
Thanks for viewing the the comments. Can be hard to get the snow and surf easily!
