Slip slidin' away
Yet another ice diving weekend up at Lake Alta, near the top of the Remarkables. Impeccably organised, as always, by Steve Bell, scuba diver from Cromwell.
We got the tub up to the lake on the back of the usual snow groomer. We were about to roll it by hand over to the divers' hole Steve had chain-sawed through the ice the previous day. When along came an obliging Ski Patroller. With a tow rope!
