Top of the world

Alpine Resort, after an exhausting day

Today was a bit cloudy and the sunrise was awesome but as the day rolled on, the clouds rolled in and visibility dropped. The cloud was kinda mid-level so the very top of the Saddle was nice and clear, but from about halfway down, it was pretty much zero!

Not to worry though, cos Tom decided to hike us up to the summit of Treble Cone – totally awesome! Mindblowing views as we looked down on top of the clouds!

After tip-toeing around and getting a bit giddy, we dropped off back into the Saddle, snow was a bit scratchy, but lots of nice powder patches – well worth it!
