Winter is here and off we go for my virgin trip to a snow mountain and my first attempt at snowboarding. Benefits of studying in New Zealand, you get to visit their awesome nature attractions as a mini trips during the weekends. Student life in NZ rocks. Of course, we have to slave ourselves at our part time job to make a trip like this.
We stayed around Ohakune and drove up to Whakapapa Ski Field.
Oh my god, snow was everywhere. It was my first time seeing so much snow. Can’t wait to get on the field for more awesome adventures.
Step onto the side of NZ’s largest active volcano, Mt Ruapehu. Situated within a dual World Heritage National Park, this spiritually and culturally significant maunga (mountain) is the highest in the North Island.
Overall it was an exhilarating experience. The snow was very soft making the falls seems less pain. Tip for newbies, please do not over dress. You will sweat alot!
Greeted by the sunset on our way down. Time to say goodbye. I will be back for sure.
