Written by myself a few years ago. Nearly 6 years ago to be exact!
...(just going to take a moment here to reflect on how old that makes me feel)
I plan to start up a blog again and fill it with various things.
But first I feel I need to bring some kind of end to this story.
Although it fell down by the wayside very early on. I had hoped with this blog to create a memory of posts and stories to immortalise this event that I felt was going to be the experience of my life.
And in many ways it was.
The trip was a whirlwind of a sport that I loved (and still do), work, new faces, socialising, drinks, food, and a few incredibly sad, lonely moments. Which were almost certainly only to balance all the fun out.
I was privileged to enjoy this 5 month long winter season - although I worked, there was a distinct lack of any responsibility as most days I didn't have a care in the world and my only thought was getting on the lazy, mid-morning lift up the mountain and spending the day shredding up the powder, making momentary friendships and staring at spectacular views.
And I was so ready, to let anything I was committed to, go ...Including this blog.
I was way too busy discovering this new lifestyle that made me feel like the eternal student but without all the studying.
I feel it's a shame that there is this unfinished story of the winter season - so hopefully these pictures taken throughout the following months will fill some of the hole.
Enjoy watching and thanks for reading!
