Sam and Stu's Kiwi Travels
Today we bought our SKI PASSES!!!!! Yey - tomorrow we're hitting the slopes!!! Could be interesting since i haven't skiied for nearly six years and Stu's trying his luck with a snowboard - we'll let you know how it goes!!! We had a nice lay in this morning (following a nice lazy day yesterday to recharge our batteries!!) We got up about 11 and headed into town to buy our passes. Once they were all sorted we decided to take a trip up on the Gondola as it was a beautiful day today. Gondola was very very steep but the view was amazing all the way up. Once at the top we took loads and loads of pictures of the view of Queenstown and the surrounding mountains. We watched a couple of people bungy off the ledge and watched some people Paraglide off the mountain behind us - there was loads going on up there. The we went on the luge run that goes from the top of the mountain back down to the Gondola - I made a flying start but as usual speed demoin Stu went flying past me halfway down :( !!!!! Then we had a bit of lunch in the cafe and headed back down the mountain. We're just about to head back to the hotel, hopefully for a quick hot tub before dinner and then we'll probably have a nice early night so we're ready and rareing to hit the slopes tomorrow!!!!
