We were away pretty much before 6.45am and it was fairly quiet when we got to the ski field, although the car park was quite full and we had to park near the edge of the big carpark - bit scary! Grey High were just in front of us on the road up there. (they stayed for 3 days).
Some of us went straight up the top of the field with Ray and just skied up there the whole day. Later when Miss D came up on her snowboard we had a couple of races and Sophie R beat Miss D too by the way.
Most of the others were getting a Beginners lesson at the Magic Carpet and 1 or 2 were practicing on the Poma slope before they got an Intermediate lesson at 12pm.
Everyone did really well with the skills and confidence that you need to get before you can do ok on the Poma slope. Hardly anyone gave up and it really paid off for people like Alex, Aiden, Emily, Caitlyn and Sami. Probably next time they will all be ready to head up the Chairlift and ski down Easy Street.
The views up the top of the field were really awesome and you can see out to a lake down the back of that mountain range that Porters on part of. Hopefully next year more of us will be up there getting better and more confident on the snow!
Check out our other photos of the day!
