Ski Touring, Bogong High Plains, July 2002.

Myself and a mate, Peter, had the good fortune to find five days free to do some ski touring around the Bogong High Plains area out of Falls Creek. The weather was nice the whole time with the first couple of days offering icy slopes, which became more powdery towards the end of the trip. I broke out the snow shoes when my minimal skiing abilities weren't up to the task, but by day five I was at least managing the easier gradients. We bivvied in the snow on two of the nights, and sheltered in the alpine huts on the other two, having the usual battle avoiding rodents. The highlight for me was summiting Mt Nelse and being rewarded with a clear view of Kosciusko and surrounds.
