Higher to find ice

Has been a long wait for cooler weather - and still none in the forecast.   Headed to the Remarkables ski field today.  From a distance Lake Alta looked like it had a good pack of snow ice so skied and walked (climbed..) to check it out.   After a hard clomp up the hill through the snow I was rewarded with a skate!   Good pack of snow ice that had thawed and re frozen.  The surface started going off when I got there but had a skate up and down one side of the lake.  Would have been good all over at first light but great to be on the skates again even if it was a bit bumpy at times.

Lake Alta - looking tempting from the ski slope
Good to be on natural ice again...
