Snow wars, snow caves and more...
Unfortunately the ski field was closed today due to the weather. However, it hasn't hampened our spirits or our adventures. Today we had a sleep in and a leisurely breakfast. Then our activities commenced:
*Trying on our ski boots (fingers crossed we will get to use them)
*We prepared to head outside in our ski gear and winter wear
*Snow play in the abundant soft snow outside our lodge
*Back inside for a lesson about the NZ mountainous weather
*Many were fascinated by watching ice melt in a pot on the fire
*Headed outside for our second round of snow play. We built our snowball battlefield with snow walls and hundreds of snowballs.
*Snow wars was on! Snowballs being projected at children and Dads as they raced across the battle fields, dodging, sliding and hiding behind their snow walls.
*The Dads built a very impressive snow survival trench while others built snow tunnels and digging out the skidoos that had been completely covered by snow overnight.
*The kids snuggled into their PJs, grabbed their pillows and watched a movie before bed.
