The teacher who loves to ski needs to wrap up the season that was… The snow came, went, came, went and that sums up the season. However, I had a great season despite a little lack of snow problem at times!
Last term I had two weeks of long service leave. I took each week separately and it worked. My students had a wonderful teacher while I was away, experienced change and the program continued. I was back before I was even missed!
Skiing Buller for a few weekends this year was a little disappointing because I love this mountain and being so close to Melbourne for my international readers means I can leave the beach and be at the ‘top of the world’ on a Friday night.
Each year my family have a week at Hotham with other families. It is tradition! The children are now independent (some instructors) which means we ‘the collective’ older members of the group can pace our week how we wish. Yes, we are up earlier and back later.
Hotham provided the experience of the season! My first helicopter ride and it was special. Not only did I experience something new I was able to have an incredible day skiing Falls Creek. I learnt to ski at Falls and hadn’t been back for many years. We are so lucky in Australia to have these resorts and I am fascinated by each mountain’s history. AND I did make a little video. 🙂
The other week I spent at Thredbo. What an incredible mountain! While at Thredbo we ‘snuck in’ a couple of other close by resorts Perisher, Guthega and Blue Cow and used the snow train as our transport. A little bit of Europe in Australia.
