As soon as we got to the very top, got our lift tickets and stepped out onto the snow, I was quite overcome at the view.
Completing my first run was the most amazing feeling when I turned back around to see what I had skiied down. I felt like I had improved over the past few days ten fold and felt great to think I actually skiied down this humungous mountain - without stacking it either! The conditions were great for a day on the slopes and Ruth and I skiied a few of the different trails down the mountain and across to what seemed like a sunken canyon which was great. This is undoubtedly the best ski resort I think I've skiied at (not that I've skiied at that many), but definitely out of the four resorts at Queenstown, this has to be the best pick. It's a little more challenging but the views, location, the runs, and for the sheer magnitude of the mountains this was by far the most impressive. I guess the weather we had was also great so this just added to the day. Gunning down the hill with the sun in your face, wind in your hair was fantastic!!! Although more of this mountain was graded as intermediate and black runs, I was comfortable on the moutains - you ski at your own pace and it's all good. By the end of the day, I didn't want to leave........if we had more time, I would definitely love to go back to Treblecone..........
