Speaker: Nic Bendeli

A ski traverse in Winter 1982 of the NZ Alps, from Arthur’s Pass to Mt Cook. A distance of about 180km in 18 days. Four participants, of which three are from Canberra: John Wanless, Dr Cliff Peady and Nic Bendeli. Nic summarises the trip as

Probably the hardest trip I have ever done. Totally exhausted with the very heavy packs, 50% foul weather and lost 5kg of body weight. Some great scenery.
