Skiing In A Thundersnow Storm In Falls Creek, Australia by 9-Year-Old

by Family Globetrotters

Skiing Is One of The Best Winter Outdoor Family Activities. But Fancy Getting Stuck in A Thundersnow Storm? Hear the Experience of What That Was Like from A 9-Year-Old Little Globetrotter.

My name is Hannah and I’m 9 years old.

FallS Creek Alpine Resort, Australia.

What I am doing in this photo is I am going up the chair lift up to the mountain so I can ski back down the skiing trail. I don’t quite remember which trail it was because there where a few skiing trails, here are the ones I went down: wombats ramble, drovers dream and mouse trap. I am pretty sure it was drovers dream. When I went up the chair lift there was a snow blizzard and it hurt my face when I still had that mask (scarf) around my face.

What I liked about this photo is that you can write so much about just one photo. When I look at the photo I just get so many ideas pop in to my head. I liked seeing people skiing and having fun on the snow. Another thing I liked about it was seeing all the trees covered in snow that all you could see was leaves just sticking out of the snow.

What I didn’t like was that the skiing boots were just so heavy, so when they were hanging down it hurt so bad because by then my legs where so sore that it hurt. Another thing that I didn’t like was the snow blizzard, because when I was skiing the snow blizzard would face directly towards my face and it hurt my face so bad. There is nothing else that didn’t like because it was an awesome 4 days at Falls Creek.Skiing In A Thundersnow Storm In Falls Creek, Australia by 9-Year-Old

Amazing experience!! I confess that i don´t really like cold or snow but some day i want to try 😉

What a cool expereince, I have never been on a cold holiday beforr never mind skiing. Maybe it is something that needs to change.

Hahah! Maybe! We love our winter holidays. We don’t get snow in the city in Australia so we have to go to the Northern Hemisphere for that. I think it completely transforms the city and its so beautiful. Hope you get to experience that someday soon:)

Skiing is definitely a great experience for everyone, regardless of age! Living in Singapore, I have not had the opportunity to see snow as of yet. Nevertheless, I’m sure that I’ll be able to experience wintry weather really soon on one of my travelling escapades – and I certainly hope to try out skiing when I’m there!

Family Globetrotters March 20, 2018 - 1:51 pm

Well I hope you’ll get to see snow one day. We absolutely love it and purposely book winter holidays just so we can experience the snow. In Australia we have to go up to the mountains. We don’t get snow in the city so we have to go searching for it too! But we love Singapore too but I tell you what…. that heat is stifling!

I just moved to Oz and had no idea there was skiing here. I was under the impression everyone around here went to Queenstown to ski. Sounds like quite the experience skiing during a storm.

Family Globetrotters March 20, 2018 - 1:48 pm

Welcome to Oz! Hope you’re having a great time so far! Yes we certainly do! Queenstown have a couple of really nice alpine slopes at Cardrona and Treble Cone but they are not ski resorts. So you can’t stay up there. And I’ve done that a couple of times but with kids its not so convenient. Hopefully you’ll get a chance to go this winter!

What a nice place to ski and it’s in Australia! Huh

Family Globetrotters March 20, 2018 - 12:02 pm

Hahah! Funny how people don’t associate Australia with skiing! We don’t have world class skiing resorts but we definitely do ok! And its only a drive away so its nice to be able to go whenever we want during the winter:)

This looks like a lovely alpine resort in Australia! I’ll be honest, I never even thought they existed there, now I do! Looks like you had a lovely time.

Family Globetrotters March 20, 2018 - 12:00 pm

Yup, Australia is definitely not known for its ski resorts. Whilst it just can’t be compared to the likes of Aspen, Zammat or Chamonix, we do ok down under! At least for us Australian we are only a drive away. We have stay on the mountain resorts, which is great for young families. Maybe one day you can come down and give it a try!
