For as long as I can remember, Mondays have simply been the beginning to another week of going off to work. Now, although I love teaching and I love working at Bethany College, this Monday was something entirely different for me.

This Monday involved blue skies, powdery soft spring snow, almost non-existent lift queues and the company of three lovely friends on the slopes of Mt St Louie about 1.5 hours drive from Oakville. The four of us played hooky from what we might otherwise be doing and under the guidance of Wendy and in the capable hands of Kim behind the wheel, we set off for our ‘girls day’ of skiing.

Living about 7 hours from the nearest ski slopes in Australia, the concept of skiing for just a day is a real novelty and so I savoured every minute of it. The four of us skied together all day, stopping for a break only at lunch time before heading back onto the slopes for the afternoon. The runs at Mt St Louie are quite long, with several quad chairs and hex chairs (if that is what they are called - they carried 6 people) which meant we were able to move quickly back up the mountain each time. We even found ourselves skiing on a black diamond run by the end of the day, although we were dubious about how they classified the level of difficulty of this run, as we seemed to be skiing it with way too much ease. Maybe the combined wisdom of the four of us took us to new heights of ability or maybe the run was just marked incorrectly. That’s our secret!

Thanks to Wendy, Kim and Sandy for an amazing day and memories I will cherish for a long time.
