The snowfields are just about an hour and a half away from where I am.
I'm not much of a skier. The truth be told, I have a irrational fear of getting hurt. Can't be because of my accident prone past, I'm sure. Anyway, decided to go up and at least have a look, even if I wasn't going to actually do anything.
It was freezing cold and drizzling - so much so that when my housemate wanted to build a snowman, I told her it'll have to be done in under a minute.
Here's the result. My only contribution was to poke the right arm into the body. Oh, and take photos while saying "Hurry up I'm freezing!!" while laughing slightly hysterically.
Had a good time but not a pleasant drive - up or down. And it was just way too crowded. And cold. And wet. However, it was an experience and another thing off my extensive list done.
