With a Considerable to High avalanche danger over the weekend, it was all about picking the right options. For me it was a no brainier- low angle ridge travel. Nothing says low angle ridge travel around the Craigieburns more than the traverse from Cheeseman ski area to Mt Olympus.
The skin track to Mt Cheeseman was laid in and Lorenzo and I made quick time, reaching the summit of Cheeseman in under 50mins and
were standing on Mt Olympus 1hr 35min after leaving the Cheeseman day lodge.
Lorenzo and I, Mt Olympus summit. Mt Enys on one side, Mt Hutt Range on the other.
The ski back was great fun, apart from when I came derailed on the flats and came to a sudden stop.
We even made a quick ski into the Hut Creak head waters, laying in the track for the next day, when Jane and I returned for a simalir tour, this time skiing into the Ryton Valley.
