Day 5 - NZ

Cookie says...
With Morgan having to stay off the slopes, Beno, Gurti and I headed up the hill again today. It turned out to be a bitsa day. Beno did a bit of the main drag and after lunch did a bit of the beginner slopes working on his turns. Gurti did a bit of a run before lunch and a bit of a run after lunch and I did a bit of helping Gurti, a bit of fast runs, a bit of jumps and got a bit out of control.

We met just after 3 and headed back to the ranch to see what Morgan had been doing. Surprise, surprise, he's been doing some more back bashing... no... not more damage, he'd slept most of the day!

Gurti needs another fashion item but at least it's functional

Dinner was on the cards and we were off to make the pilgrimage to Fergburger. True to form, it was busy but we secured some seats and waited for our orders to be filled. Fifteen minutes later our bellies had been filled.

Big burgers to fill big mouths and big appetites

On the way out I bumped into Brooksie (from work) and Henri. They'd been pushing Cardronian snow down the hill but were staying in Queenstown. I had been hoping that we'd meet up with them later tonight but although my crew were keen on checking out the Minus 5 bar, they seem to fall asleep at the drop of a hat!

I tell thee... they don't make young whipper-snappers like they used to!
