Evening at Cardrona Ski Field

Cardrona-Wanaka

Otago

Tim, 13

The cool mountain breeze whistles around you while the gondola and chairlifts hum away. People chatter away while carrying their there clanking skis and snowboards. The sun starts to creep down making the snow glow orange, you can just see the lake around the corner glistening. Now it starts to get even colder and you feel tired from carrying in all your heavy gear but you don’t mind because the view distracts you. The car has needle like icicles hanging from underneath. As you drive down the mountain you wipe the fogged up windows to small creeks and waterfalls frozen.
