Skiing at Mt Ruapahu

Mt Ruapahu

Gisborne/East Cape

Jermial, 11

Sliding in the dirty slushy snow on Mount Ruapehu feeling like one of the walking dead is my top spot in New Zealand. Chasing my friends Cody, and Maia, climbing up our playground made out of snow, I felt like Usain Bolt winning a Gold medal in the men’s 100 meter sprint in the Olympics but it is in the snow. The snow felt like nails going through my face when I did a face plant.
