Life Below Zero: Snowboarding

I now have a reason to love the harsh northern winter!

There are a few things you can enjoy when you are approximately 2300 km from the Arctic Circle…in the middle of winter.


I seem to love early morning adventures; waking up at 05:15 am to catch the bus to the mountains is a breeze. Packed sandwiches, water and ready to roll. I bought a multi-coloured helmet that would probably match my primary school backpack – it’s worth a mention because I am so happy with the purchase! Mainly because it saved my life. A few times.


As the snow season is drawing to an end, I have had my fair share of bruises, falls, rolls, aching muscles and and a sore butt! Coming from the sunny south, this was the highlight of a bitterly cold winter!

What an experience. And, it only cost me RMB 90 for an entire day on the slopes. This fare includes transportation and gear hire.
