August 2, 2009: New Zealand!

Methven, New Zealand – After about 24 hours of traveling, I made it to New Zealand! The trip was relatively easy despite a 6 hour layover. I don’t think it’s quite hit me yet that I’m in such an exotic island locale and going to snowboard. Crazy!

I haven’t seen much yet other than an amazing sunrise and beautiful mountain vistas. Unfortunately due to the wind the mountain has been closed for the past few days but hopefully it’ll die down by tomorrow when we go up to train. They’ve had a good snow season so far and I’ve heard the conditions outside of the wind are great. Yay!

So tomorrow will mark the beginning of the final push for the Games. Can’t believe they are only six months away!
