Seven Summits on Skis
Imagine climbing the highest Peak on each continent, now imagine skiing off the top of each high point! Kit Deslauriers is technically the only person to have done it & her husband is hot on her tails to be the second. Whilst not a technically challenging mountain Mt Kosciuszko is one of the Seven Summits & due to the weather we experience it has turned around quite a few Seven Summit aspirants. Rob Deslauriers from Jackson Hole ticked off his 6th Summit last Sunday skiing Mt Kosciuszko with SMBC. Not to disappoint there was, wind, poor viz & variable snow. The afternoon was spent with a celebratory beer at the Jindabyne Brewery & 9 holes at the Coolamatong Golf Club Berridale. Rob rated our lovely little ski town of Jindabyne, our backcountry terrain & the golf course...just sayin!
He's a winner of a bloke & let's hope he backed a few as his next stop was Flemmington for the Melbourne Cup & more golf!
Rob's final peak is the South American continents high Peak Aconcagua in Argentina. Lovely to meet you Rob & best of luck with your final ascent.
