... it didn't time out. Hopefully it works when you click on it.
Handed the skis in at about 3:30pm it had stopped snowing completely by then.
Came back to the room and checked the status of the incoming flight from Miami which arrives tonight and is the plane we will catch out from Denver tomorrow at 07:50am. It took off 45mins late but is currently scheduled to arrive OK in Denver. Phew! Many incoming flights to Denver were on hold ...

... br> We successfully explored Peaks 6, 7 and 10 today (having done peaks 8 and 9 yesterday). It was very, very windy at the top of the new Peak 6 so felt very cold. Reminded me of Turoa in NZ.
Obtained a decent cup of coffee at Peak 7 bar, by asking for a triple espresso with a dash of hot water. Heaven. The Horizon hut cafe at Peak 6 was a table of muesli bars and chippies and water or soft drink bottles. Toilets were long drops as obviously there was no running water. ...
