It was after lockdown, I was still living and working shift work on the West Coast , thus I was willing to travel great distances for the promise of laying my skis on the snow. From the 13th- 15th of July I did just that, I headed up to Rex Simpson Hut (privately owned and available for booking through Alpine Recreation) with David Lyons Ewing. To be joined later that evening by Shona Logue and Graham Dawson. The company and scenery was excellent, as was the wine and cheese platter.
The snow very variable so the skiing was fairly interesting and unfortunately it managed to get a hold on Shona and do some damage to her knee. A real trooper though, she determinedly made it all the way back to the hut and most of the way out the next day, despite being barely able to walk, and entirely unable to ski.
