A little bit about Catherine
Catherine is a Québécoise bird biologist who hopped on a plane to New Zealand to explore its beautiful wilderness and assist with bird conservation and research projects. She is also a big fan of snowshoeing, having spent many a winter floating across the snow using snowshoes.
How did you spend last summer? 'I was in the Arctic monitoring big ducks that breed in high densities there, and interact with polar bears.'
Why Wanaka? 'The real answer is it just happened, I didn't plan it. I thought it was beautiful here and decided to stay.'
If you were a ski slope, what would you be called and why? 'Cat-astrophe.'
Preferred cold weather drink and snack: 'Rich hot chocolate, soup or fondue, anything warm.'
Favourite spot at Snow Farm NZ: 'The Bob Lee Hut. The view of the mountains -- that 360 view.'
