Casey Station is serviced by two airports. There’s the main Australian Antarctic Territory one, Wilkins Aerodrome (which I’ve been calling an aerodome the last couple years), and a smaller skiway which the fixed wing aircraft can land on (like the Baslers we saw when we flew in). It was from this smaller skiway that 26ish of us took a bus to. This social outing offered one the chance to walk, cycle, cross country ski, or run back to station (~10km). I, stupidly, chose to run. Di and Gwil took the ski option (we got an induction/crash course in cross country skiing earlier today from the FTO leader Mick), and Kath chose sensibly to walk.

Would cycling be difficult over the snow or is it quite icy?
The bikes here have very chunky tyres so I’m told it’s difficult!
