Skiing at Cardrona

Skiing at Cardrona

Getting back onto the travelling post, catch ups..

Whilst I was still in Queenstown, I decided to go skiing for the first time in my life! I have always wanted to try it, so I booked to have a lesson and it was so much fun!

Cardrona was such a beautiful place and made me feel all christmassy, although I did get a tiny bit sunburnt from the snow reflecting the sun!
The lessons were 3 hours each, and we had two of them. We learnt how to stop, put on our skiis, how to navigate, how to climb up a hill..

Eventually, we went up the small magic carpet (not the ski lift, this day) and got the chance to go down some steeper hills.
To be honest, I am not that good and not too confident whilst throwing myself down the hills haha but with some practice I will get better and a lot more confident!

The only downside to skiing is that the boots are SO PAINFUL! I came home from skiing with a long ling of blisters going across my right ankle which was pretty disgusting and very painful haha but it was definitely worth it!

Here are a few photos, and a link to the video when Mandy caught me falling over whilst going down a hill!
