❄︎ NEW ZEALAND ❄︎

暑すぎる😩 やっぱり東京の夏はしんどいです💦

特に真冬のニュージーランドから戻ってくると本当にサウナみたい!

一昨日までは「寒くて死ぬ🙀」なんて言ってたんですけどね (^^;;

体が真冬から真夏の気候に慣れるまでしばらく家の中にこもっています。笑

昨日ニュージーランドから帰国しました!Mt.Hutt に3週間ほど雪上練習しに行ってきました♪ 今回は友達の瑠奈と行き、個人練習をしてからK-SNOWのキャンプに少しだけ参加しました。

飛行機に乗る前から滑るのが楽しみでしょうがなく、現地に到着した翌日、滑る気満々で早起きしてよし、用意完了!!ってなったところで…まさかのロードクローズ。Mt.Hutt のスキー場は険しい山道を車で約40分上った所にあるので風が強くなるとすぐにクローズになってしまいます。

まあ、しょうがないか〜と思って次の日滑るのをまた楽しみにしていたら、またクローズ。なんと強風によってクローズが五日間も続き、着いてから一週間弱一回も山に上がれませんでした。

天気はものすごくいいのに山に上がれないし、Methvenでやることないし…ってイライラしていましたが、るなとジムに行ったり、家の近くの羊に会いにいったり、アルパカを探しにいったり、結局色々楽しめました^^

あとの二週間はクローズになった日が少なく、とても充実した毎日を過ごす事が出来ました。山行って滑って、帰ってきたらトレーニングして、ご飯作って、ミーティングして、シャワー浴びて、少し携帯いじったら寝る!って感じですごく忙しかったんですが、とても楽しかったです。残念ながら予定より滑走日数は少なくなってしまったんですが、色々習得出来てとても良い練習が出来たと思います。

私は25日から学校が始まるのであと夏休み残りわずかですが、満喫してから新学年を迎えたいと思います!夏休みは終わってほしくないけど、最近勉強がしたくなっちゃってる。笑 今年は難しい授業を選択しすぎた気がして少し心配ですが😅

Senior year、楽しみです♪

では!:)

Hey guys😀

Just landed in Narita yesterday! It’s literally a sauna outside. Tokyo summers are deathly, especially right after getting off the plane from somewhere mid-winter. I miss the cold already😭 I’m not planning on leaving my air conditioned room anytime soon.

I went to New Zealand for three weeks to train at Mt.Hutt. This time I got to go with my good friend Runa who does snowboard cross 😀

Before I even got on the plane, I was anxious to be back on the snow. The day after we got there, I got up early — extremely excited and ready to head to the mountains and start training— but the roads and slopes were closed. Going to Mt.Hutt involves about a 40 minute drive up this not-so-safe terrain (that’s apparently on some list of “the world’s scariest roads”), so when the winds get too strong, no one is allowed up.

One day of waiting wasn’t too bad. But the next day it was also closed. And the next day. The mountain ended up being closed for five days straight! Talk about great timing. Runa and I were frustrated and bored out of our minds but we tried to make the most of our time in NZ. We ended up going to the gym, bonding with the sheep next door, and searching for alpacas🐑 It turned out to be a pretty fun week off!

The next two weeks were extremely productive. The slopes were only closed maybe once or twice, and I got a lot of quality training time. The days went by really quickly because we were so busy: Wake up, go to the mountain, train, come back, go to the gym, make dinner, have a meeting with the coach, shower… by the time we finally had time to lay in bed and check our phones, we had to go to sleep in order to be able to get up the next morning and do it all again. I love being busy though!

Our great luck during the first week decreased the time I got to spend on snow quite a bit, but during the time I was able to train, I definitely improved and learned a lot of valuable lessons.

School starts in about a week! After experiencing the work load of junior year, I don’t really want summer to end, but I’m looking forward to being a senior. To be honest, I kind of miss learning and doing homework but I’m sure I’ll take that back in a couple of weeks.

Hope everyone had an amazing summer!! ☀️💕
