Skiing+Orienteering +MTBing in Tekapo

The days, weeks and months have been flying by and its already a month since I was in Tekapo for a weekend of fun activities all in aid of Orienteering….

Saturday, after a late Friday night arrival was spent out Skiing at Roundhill. First (hopefully not the last…) day skiing for the year. There wasn’t a huge amount of snow, so we were confined to the lower slopes, so we made the most of our lift passes and managed a good few short runs. 4pm and the ski field closure time rolled around all too quickly!

Sunday started with orienteering in some fairly cold conditions. I took on board some points from the evening discussion and focused on enjoying myself, which meant letting Nick go when he came past me. Carsten unfortunately just sneaked in front of me at the finish too. Oh well, since Georgia and I had carted Mountain Bikes up to Tekapo we now had to use them, so there was time for a quick bike ride around the track we had just run on. It was enough to make me feel a bit fatigued, so a trip to the hot pools afterwards was the perfect way to end the weekend.
