A young German tramper’s been missing in the Nelson Lakes National Park for a couple of days.
Sunday was a breeze-less 23C day.
Monday got to 14C and this storm came through in the evening, dumping 8cm of snow on Mt Arthur (1800m) and backed up by an evil south-westerly gusting to 40km/h with wind-chill down to -15C.
He’ll be really lucky to get through this unscathed.
New Zealand can be a dangerous place
Update 4 December 2015:
His body was never found and he was formally declared missing, premused dead earlier this year.
