Four of us on the hill today, and despite the snowdrifts on the road, ferried the last of the repaired towers up the hill, dug in four more, and laid out the return rope. Cold, wet and miserable work but we now only have an engine shed to reassemble, six more towers to dig in, and a rope to splice, and then we're pretty much ready to go.
Despite the thaw, lack of fencing, and the storm that had blown much of the snow over the east of the ridge, the presence of the gully has left us about a km of skiable snow along the lip.
The rope tow pylons and the upper run - snow fencing would have created a viable uptrack last week
Laying out the return rope behind the quad just as we finish off another tower - The quad is proving invaluable on days like today when the access road is blocked by snowdrifts.
