Patrick and Rosa have had a blast since arriving in Niseko!
They both took to snowboarding like fish to water, so much so that they dared each other to drop off a rather big ledge.
Patrick who was feeling quite confident decided to go first.
It didn't go exactly as he'd hoped, he landed on his head! But he quickly recovered himself and described the experience as similar to landing headfirst into a giant marshmallow. Rosa tried to imagine what that'd be like because as it happens she's never landed headfirst into a giant marshmallow.
Rosa was next to go off the ledge and she landed perfectly! She tried not to show the extent of her excitement because she didn't want Patrick to feel bad.
Next on the 'must do' list of snow activities (kindly written for them by the critters before they left) was make a snowman. Patrick and Rosa decided to make a snowman with a twist - a snow cat.
They were extremely pleased with the snow cat (it might even become this year's Christmas card)!
Later that afternoon while Patrick was telling Rosa all about the history of pom poms on beanies and the role they play in snow fashion, Rosa was planning a snowball attack. She secretly rolled a snowball
Honed in on her target
Then threw the snowball with all her might
And BAM! It hit Patrick right in the face! The secret snowball attack was executed better than she could've hoped for and Rosa could barely contain her laughter. After a few moments of shock and surprise, Patrick also burst out laughing.
Patrick promised he'd get her back for the snowball attack when she least expected it...
