Martina Halik is Tania's daughter and her childhood was much different. "My childhood summers were spent in a canoe and winters were on skis," she writes on the website.

Mount Olympus, NZ: Where snowriders define heaven (and get topless)

It's lunchtime, 1620 metres above sea level in the Top Hut. Above the scuffle of snow boots and jangle of nutcrackers (the standard-issue metal attachment everyone uses to grip the rope tow), benevolent banter fills the building. "You guys here for lunch?" "Picked a great weekend for it! Forecast is for these snow flurries to continue all night..." "Rock n' roll." Wearing harnesses and broad smiles, riders and sliders mingle in the kitchen, reception/dining/bar area and lounge as warm
