We left Sydney around 6pm and we ended up getting there around 1am. The bus journey took us more than 6 hours to get there. Once we were there we had to organize everything for the morning. I wasn’t looking forward to that, simply because I was tired and all I wanted to do was to get to bed and get some decent sleep after a long time on the coach. In the morning we had to get up at 6.30 for breakfast and leave for the mountains at 8am. Wow, finally getting to the mountains was amazing, my first time going on the snow, what was I thinking? Well, there was too much of emotions, happiness and excitement at the same time. As a first timer I was given two hours training on how to ski. At first I thought to myself I wouldn’t be able to do this, to my surprise I had the most incredible instructor. He was very easy going and showed me all the basic to skiing. As the training went on I started to get my confidence up and I was enjoying every moment of it. After two hours of training we were able to ski on our own. Day one on the mountains was great, everything was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. The whole snow experience was just unreal; it was just amazing and fantastic at the same time. I had the best time of my life and I will cherish and appreciate the whole experience for the rest of my life. Will I do it again? You bet I will, I’m already planning my next trip early next year. See you next year everyone!!!
