On Friday we made our way down to Mt Ruapehu for a weekend at the snow, with family, friends, food, games and good times. And what an enjoyable one it has been. We had the most perfect day for weather on Sunday, which meant of coarse that the mountain would be packed. I mean seriously, isn't this incredible?
I tell you, the wait at the lifts was well worth it when you got to the top. Such an incredible view we had, as there were no clouds. And how good is it being in lovely ol' New Zealand, as you will definitely be bumping into people you know which always makes for a lovely and enjoyable surprise.
So many people, so many boards. I understand why snow gear always come in the bright and bold colours and patterns, as that is the only way to find the people you know!
And of coarse you cannot go a weekend in Ohakune without having the best burgers in town from Powder Keg! That kept me satisfied for hours to come. Also found the cutest little beanies while browsing the little shops. Absolutely loved this mousey one, but alas, my hair is too thick and long and won't fit under a beanie!
Cannot wait for the next trip down, amped already!
