    "I'm not feeling 100 percent about this" "Yeah I'm 100 percent not feeling this!" We decided not to ski east face of Twynam in the morning because it was icy, good choice in the end because the corn elsewhere was deluxe!

    Huge crew from ANU about 15 people made a big snow cave, was very impressed (compared to our tiny one) it could probably have seated everyone in their group!

    Much better than being stuck in a tent for three days like last time I was here!






    "Aw come on guys, just a few turns!?" - someone who was way keener than her friends I think who carried on walking past!





    Exciting pre-lunch run!


    Favourite run for the trip





    Having fun under the starlight.

    Excellent short vid. I see you even lugged around a "proper" camera!

    Very nice. Is that blue lake? We're looking at heading across in a couple of weeks....seems that there will be plenty of snow left!

    You went up from Guthega and over the suspension bridge near the hut ? It looks marvelous!

    Yes hahah, going to try and lug one up one to Feathertop this weekend too, hopefully still some snow left up there!

    Sorry no that's my friend Gina's tent. I was really impressed with it though! Seems to work well, good choice! Hope you've still got yours? :)

    Yep Blue Lake, and still no sign of the lake water. I would say you're right in that guess! especially on the south faces.
