A weekend at the snow

It’s only been a little over a month since we got back from our wonderful holiday in the US, but last weekend Ben and I were off again for the weekend. We headed down with a few friends of ours – Marilia, Ryan, Byron and Ciersley – to the snow. The Station Resort in Jindabyne had a room for 6 people for $99/night which was an awesome deal, and we also put the BBQ in the car so we didn’t need to go out for dinner, which actually made it a rather affordable weekend. Also, with Ben still based in Canberra, it’s only a 2 hour drive to the snow which is very convenient.

The snow at Perisher was actually quite good all weekend, although it was pretty cold and blizzardy at the top of the mountain. It was Ciersley’s first time at the snow, and Marilia is a beginner too, so Byron, Ben and I did quite a lot of riding together. Ryan was being a gentleman and being patient with Marilia 😉

Despite it being a year since we were last on the snow, we all got back into it pretty quickly and were flying down the slopes and hitting the terrain park in no time! I was even trying some little jumps, and got some good photos of Ben and Byron doing some jumps, rails, and drops. On the Sunday, Ben even landed a 360 which he was really excited about.

The weekend flew by, and on Sunday afternoon it was time to head off. We drove straight from the slopes back to Ben’s hotel in Canberra where we relaxed and showered before heading out for an early dinner. I then had to hit the road to head back to Sydney, and sadly had to leave Ben in Canberra!! 🙁

We’re thinking of heading back down for another weekend soon, so we’ll see what happens.

Thanks so much to all of you that donated to us for the City2Surf. City2Surf is on Sunday so we’re both looking forward to that. 🙂

Hope you’re all well!
Jacqueline and Ben
