laurenepbath I love this - it's like Snow Gums in the mist. Taken down at Dinner Plain, Hotham's new dedicated beginner area. (And cheapest lift pass in Australia) I already miss Winter, I'm the opposite of my American and Canadian friends. Lol. @HothamAlpineResort #Hotham2014 1d

laurenepbath Good morning! Here's a shot from up in the clouds on the Summit run at Mount Hotham. The Summit run is a great green run with different gradients and a view of the Victorian Alps. @HothamAlpineResort #Hotham2014 1d

laurenepbath I'm sorry to those that hate winter but I'm a total convert! There's nothing better than winter sports and chilling out by the window next to the heater later on. Also - hot chocolate, fires, warm bowls of soup. And skiing, hello! @HothamAlpineResort #Hotham2014 2d
  •   laurenepbath @ccons3 Whooo hooooo, #winterclub !! 1d
  •   laurenepbath @roboutdoors glad to be here lol 1d
  •   patriciafrei1234 @laurenepbath have fun! I can't wait for winter to come around on the northern hemisphere 1d
  •   shakira_alhakeem @laurenepbath I will!! Thank you! Have an awesome day! 1d
  •   nightowl44 @laurenepbath You are right about being close to Big Bear or Arrowhead for local ski and I have done it a few times but really dislike driving in snow or fog. I guess that makes me an armchair traveler. 24h
  •   johnny_nacho I love to spend a winter afternoon next to a heater with snow outside!! Great photo! 20h
  •   susanmm3 Beautiful Aussie snow. 15h
  •   anaiisweimer I love winter when I can have a walk in the snow and enjoy our beautiful world if I can stay behind the fire and enjoy my hot chocolate with a candle light when I come back home. But it's only possible to enjoy it oversea, cause our house are created to keep our inside warm and hot during automn and winter...it means I'm not enjoying winter in Australia cause its as freezing inside as outside :/ - anyway I'm glad to be back in Oz !! 3h

laurenepbath For those snow gum fans out there - aren't they the most beautiful trees? I was only photographing the trees because I was waiting for the husky's to come. Haha. This was down at Dinner Plain, @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 2d

laurenepbath Soooo, I really loved the response I got to my last "white out" shot from Mount Hotham and decided to post another one. I skied down a blue run with my camera bag AND fell over (due to being off balance) to get this shot. This is literally the visibility on a white day. Surprisingly when you're concentrating you manage to avoid other people. Lol. @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 3d

laurenepbath Meet Syd. Syd is a border collie x who spends his days down at Moose Lodge in Dinner Plain just chilling in his personal window seat. Personally I think Syd is the luckiest dog around! @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 4d

laurenepbath Today I did something different and took photos instead of skiing all day. lol. I was fortunate enough to spend the day down at Dinner Plain, an adorable alpine village known for it's beautiful snow gum trees! Besides photographing these I also met some locals of the four legged variety and squeezed in a massage. @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 4d

laurenepbath A few people have asked me what a white out looks like - this! I've barely touched this photo in post, this is how the visibility looks on a day like yesterday at Hotham. Personally I thought it was great, when you can barely see the slopes you can't be scared! Lol. @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 4d

laurenepbath I love watching kids on skis! I don't love that they're often better than me. Lol. @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 4d

laurenepbath Usually I feel like my images more or less reflect the time that I'm having. Today was a little bit different. Today was one of the BEST days of my life! I spent 7 hours skiing and progressed up to blue runs. But photographically today was a massive challenge because we had a complete white-out! Question - Do you ski or board or have you never tried either? @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 5d
  •   fimail70 @laurenepbath it's part of an autoimmune condition, in my case, so I don't think it'll go on its own - I'm trying medication but no luck yet. Cross fingers indeed! Sadly, though, my lack of coordination definitely isn't going anywhere 4d
  •   lubel80 I did take lessons. For both. I guess I'm just meant to do summer sports, not winter ones. :) 4d
  •   tagen_85 @laurenepbath I'm glad your are improving! You'll have to come and try the Canadian slopes! 4d
  •   sockmunkey6 I'm crying its summer hear and I want to be there so bad snowboarding is like my life 4d
  •   toniel22 I snowboard and love it... head up pretty much every weekend in winter and do an OS trip once a year. I was at Hotham last weekend, so we might've shared a lift! Great shots 3d
  •   bungielove Ski for 43 years now. Still love it 3d
  •   jpschaef They are at first but thatssnowboarding you have to go big to learn! Once you can carve everything comes smooth 3d
  •   yarnvszombies That's my board! 2d

laurenepbath I love fluorescent lichen! It's probably the only thing giving color to the landscape here today at Hotham - it's SNOWING! Hopefully I get time for a ski tomorrow. I've got lots of moody, misty images from today. @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 5d

laurenepbath I'm curious about this photo - I really like it but it's super different to what I usually do. I'd love to hear feedback. I shot this yesterday as the weather started to roll in at Mount Hotham. And for those that are interested - I just did TWO BLUE RUNS. It's absolutely terrifying. Lol. @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 5d

laurenepbath Good morning! This is the view from close to my apartment taken yesterday. (Today is a different story, white out!) I'm up bright and early for a private ski lesson. It's really helping to ski on my own with the odd lesson thrown in. Wish me luck. @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 5d

laurenepbath I went to shoot "sunset" today and, as you can see, we didn't get a lot of color. The reason being - fresh snow is coming! OMG, I will die if I get a powder day tomorrow. Despite the lack of color in the sky I managed to find plenty to interest me including all this beautiful foliage that survives the winter. @hothamalpineresort #Hotham2014 6d
  •   laurenepbath @thesablirab thanks a lot, green and white are always complimentary :) 5d
  •   laurenepbath @littlemissexplorer people love travel! 5d

Thousands of tourists are there now having great times. I haVe been there my self and planning to go there many times to come. 5d
  •   laurenepbath @abyaaser5 haha - I'm not made of money. Most of the travel that I do is for work and I just take what comes my way. I have been in touch with tourism Oman though. I'll have to chase it up. 5d
  •   zeroneyang So beautiful! 5d

laurenepbath I'M IN THE SNOW! I literally couldn't pick two different trips to go back to back! I arrived safely at @hothamalpineresort and have ready hit the slopes. Can you believe I was rusty already? Haha. The Aussie slopes are amazing, heading out for sunset soon. #Hotham2014 6d
