Whakapapa Day 1

Whakapapa, Turangi
Snowboarding: Freeride
9:30 am - 4 pm Saturday. August 4. 2012
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: NE Wind Strength: windy

Headed up with some friends for the weekend - stayed close by in this funky little bach in Erua which was about 20 mins drive from the mountain. Spent most of the time in Happy Valley with the kids who were right back into it after a year off the snow. It's amazing o watch how quickly they just pick it up again.

Alastair tried snowboarding for the first time today and after just a couple of runs was looking pretty sweet. I think the slushy snow helped make things just that bit more forgiving!

I went up the top for a couple of runs but it was pretty windy and cloudy so was happy to retreat to the valley after a while and play Dad.

Not too crowded for a weekend - not much snow around so I guess the hoards were saving their cash...
