Skiing travel

Skiing in Queenstown, August 2013

All too short weekend of skiing in Queenstown! We skied at Cadrona (terrible visibility, but pretty nice conditions otherwise), Remarkables (nice, I got a ski lesson which was really good), and I went solo to Coronet (too icy) because the boys were too tired.

I’ve wanted to ski in New Zealand for as long as I can remember, part of my goal to ski on every content. It’s different from resorts I’ve been to in Europe, and even Japan – no ski in ski out, but drives of 30 minutes to over an hour. On the up side, Queenstown felt more like a small town than a resort, and there were some cool arty shops that I really liked. But still, I much prefer rolling out of bed and onto the hill!

New Zealand was, as ever, stunning, and having finally discovered the panorama feature on the iPhone camera, I took a bunch.
