Today we went skiing in sastrugi, that is a lot of windblosen formations. The result of this was a broken ski, Thomas was the unlucky guy. In lack of another ski, we had to repair it, which seemed to be quite a difficult task. Improvising the best we were able to, we took the cookingplate, sawed it in two and fastened it to the ski by screwing and using glassfibre and epoxy. Tomorrow morning and the day after will show if it works out. And we probably looked at the mountain scenery for the last time for a while this afternoon.
