So today, I thought I would share the best and worst of Mount Ruapehu. The best and the worst of everything, on back to back days. The first day was so hot we ended up skiing in tee shirts and sunbathing on the snow. The following day was white out conditions, slopes being closed and heading home early.
The best of the frozen day? Well, other than ankle blisters popping - turns out I was wearing ski boots that were a little too snug - having to buy a new scarf because I had lost mine in the snow somewhere, and generally dealing with a mountain full of people all stuck by the carpark, there were great times. The hot chocolate was amazing, the people were wonderful, and we had plenty of time to create prank photos.

Don't ever believe that I am grown up and sensible!
