In mid-September I went with some mates to Perisher in the Snowy Mountains. This was the first time I have been skiing in Australia and the first time in three years I have been on skis.
After an hour or so of slow blue and green runs I finally sorted myself out and got my skiing mojo back, and my the end of the weekend was happily skiing some “basic” black runs.
I have to make a massive mea culpa though, for the past four years I have written off Australian ski fields without even visiting them. But Perisher was amazing. It is huge, there are so many lifts and this means there are no big queues, the snow was great, yes there were trees, but there were no rocks and a massive variety of terrain to ski on.
The weather was brilliant, actually ridiculously hot for skiing, 13c at the base area, and I didn’t crash into any trees.
Below are some of the photos taken on the trip, the two of me skiing were taken by Stephanie Sandoval
Additionally, another mate put together this bloopers video from the trip:
