From Nigel: Probably the coldest day so far with a keen wind meaning most opted for goggles and big over-gloves at least for the morning. Skiing into the wind the view is unchanging – flat and white. We strained our eyes to see DYE 2, our next destination point without luck. It is a remnant of the Cold War, an American radar warning site. Mid afternoon we heard a noise and were amazed to see a helicopter fly overhead. We skied on. Excitement today was changing long skis for short ones, which will help with glide and speed. Another 20km day.
Big shout out to Miss Wilkinson, Chris W and class at Christchurch South Intermediate who are following the journey!
Roll on tomorrow.
