I love the culture that comes with snow sports and everybody who is around the sport is there to have fun and a good time. Regardless of it’s the local mountain or an overseas ski resort- everybody has a story about their “best run of the day” or that time they found fresh power.
It’s great to get out and about in winter when most people are bunkered down at home. Especially only being about 2 hours from Melbourne it is really close and makes for the great weekend away or short overnight trip.
My best day on the mountain was last year when I went back to Whistler with two mates from High School. To be able to share that experience of a big snow day in Whistler with them was a memory that will stay with me for a long time.
We had 40cm of snow overnight and we’re one of the first people up the Whistler Peak chair. We decided to take the Peak to Creek trail which was the longest run in the mountain of 7.5kms. We were the only three people on the run.
