Snow aliens on Mt Owen
A snow alien is what happens when you land on your back in hard, icy snow and your head leaves a giant hole but your arms and legs look spindly.
I discovered this new life form when I was on a Lord of the Rings Location Tour with Reid Heslop Helicopters. The tour starts at the Reid HQ and takes you over farmland, forestry pines, crystal clear trout fishing streams and swoops up to the snowcapped mountains of Mt Owen where you stop off for a coffee and a chocolate bar.
I was travelling with a posse of rad Australians who all got very excited about the amount of snow. The mountains looked like they were covered in wedding cake icing.
Have you been to the snow recently? Did you throw yourself into it, only to discover it’s as hard and cold as a brothel madame?
