Far afield

How far would you go for a white Christmas? John Crowley, Darryl Polyk and Rudi Thoni skied about 20 km round trip to find snow. Snow has been slow in coming this winter, but these folks didn’t mind travelling for it. But even on Dixon’s Glacier (near Albreda) snow is in short supply. The snow depth at 1800 m was about 90cm. / ANDRU MCCRACKEN
