On Friday Te Horo School year 7 and year 8 went with Mangakahia and Pakotai to Snow planet. With all the excitement bumping out of me I was ready to go to snow planet for the first time. We left Mangakahia at 7:30 am to go to Auckland.
When we left we were shouting and eating. I was mostly eating. When we were travelling we had to sit down at all times. On our way to Auckland I was knocked out for about an hour but it was a sleepy kind of knocked out. When we arrived at Auckland we soon arrived at snow planet.
Soon we got changed into ski boots and waited with our group. A man came and gave us lessons on how to ski. It was fun, it was easy to brake we had to make a big slice a pizza. When your skis are together in a small pizza slice you go faster.
My toes were frozen cold and locked up. The snow felt hard when I fell on it. I fell over ten or more times each time I was getting colder and colder. I can’t wait for another trip back to snow planet.
Some people were tired and slept all the way back to school.
