All plans are usually prone to changes at these latitudes. A week ago, we planned for a rest day today. Since then, we came up with the idea of skiing a couple more days before the rest so that the final part of our journey would be shorter. But when we looked out of the tent this morning and couldn't see very far, we called ourselves a day of rest.
But the story doesn't end there. After a couple of hours of active rest, the sky opened up and revealed good skiing weather. Since we already had everything ready for skiing in the morning, we decided to ski for half a day. Good decision; we made good progress on flat terrain for five hours.
