Thredbo had a great rail park set up for early season so I got my hike on all week and learnt some new tricks. After Thredbo I ventured down to Buller to get some time on one of the sickest features in Aus, the Cattlemans replica rail.
The trip to Buller was busy but super fun; I filmed with the Channel 10 crew along with my brothers and we ended up being included in a segment on the six o’clock news. It was really awesome to have the opportunity to raise awareness about our journey to Sochi! We were also featured in the Herald Sun, check out the clipping below.
I’ve been here in Whistler for the last week and already have gotten a decent tan and am loving the warm weather. Its amazing finally having a Summer I’ve totally forgotten what its like.
I’ve never ridden on a glacier before but apart from the long chairlift commute in the morning (where I pass the time looking for Black Bears), it’s sick. Ive spotted 4 bears so far. Our house is about a 10 minute walk to the lake so we have been hitting up the rope swing after training almost every day.
