Steep and deep wet

This weekend we went back to the Duffy Lake road in search of higher altitudes and colder temperatures. Up we drove, and the thermometer on the car didn't budge. Parked at about 1600m, it was +2 degrees. This seemed highly unfair as the UK is currently getting dumped on with snow. Can we have our weather back please?

We set out anyway and got a few nice breaks in the cloud to reveal a little blue sky. The snow was pretty heavy with moisture, but we got some skiing done and ran into some interesting new people we found lurking in the forest. Photos here.
