Snow at the Abbey

Our son Max got to have an early winter for his birthday.  We flew in to the Abbey and enjoyed about 5 cm of fresh snow at the hut and this increased in quantity with elevation to about 20cm at Schooner pass.  This snow is probably the first layer of the season.

Improvements at Battle Abbey

This Fall and early Winter we made some more improvements at Battle Abbey.  In the Fall we put in a new 1 1/2" waterline from the spring to the Pumphouse which replaces the old, insulated 1" line.  The old line was in a graded, wooden aquaduct that ran along the top of a small cliff and it was a chore to keep it covered with snow.  The snow was the only way to keep it from freezing.  The new line is down in the rocks, on the ground, and below the cliff, so it is alway covered with meters of snow, even during low snow winters.
