I'll be working in the snow!!!

If you're one of my FB friends, this will not be news, but last week I was offered a role on one of the Ski fields and quite frankly, jumped at it. I don't think I've said  'thank you, thank you, thank you' so much when accepting a job.  I gave in my notice to my current employers and have spent the last week skipping around like a child.

This was the reason I wanted to come to Queenstown in winter. I had accepted that due to the high amount of applicants (over two thousand), working for the ski fields may not happen, but I was content to work in town and spend my days off on the mountain. If that failed, I'd stay as long as I could and try. I had to tell myself that after a run of unusual jobs in Australia, maybe I'd used up my luck.  I mean, I'd got to sail the South Pacific on a tall ship for seven months, something that had allowed me to experience enough adventure for two life times, I couldn't really complain.  I understood that perhaps the jobs available to me here couldn't compete with the past.  Then New Zealand showed me otherwise.

And now I have no excuse not completing one of the items on my Queenstown bucket list; 'learning to snowboard.'  I'm a complete newbie to snow sports but I'm determined to make the most of this fantastic opportunity.  

Exciting times are a head. Lets hope this season brings lots of snow and no broken bones!
