The fourth Lake Alta expedition, 2008

Well we did it again, and in the best weather ever. The ice at 1,800m (6,000 feet) up the Remarkables was a metre thick this year, and 37 scuba divers went under it, and then back to the Kiwitub. After they'd left, Nina and Lara arrived to tent out after a hot tub and bottle of sweet Lexia Riesling under a perfect clear and calm night. They headed off the next morning across to Wye Creek, gun cross country skiers that they are. The N.Z. Alpine Club Otago section snowcraft course descended from on high, tubbed, shared the second bottle of Lexia, rolled in the snow, and obligingly rolled and carried the tub and gear back to the pick-up for the snow groomer. A good weekend.

Tub on top of Mt Alt, full of climers!
