Not a Ski Chalet

By Hulme
In the Australian Snowy Mountains huts like these are havens from the wind and weather for ski-tourers during the evenings, a crude but welcome shelter in which to cook and converse out of the elements.

But at bed time it is best to head for a tent, because once the last candle is extinguished the local rats (antechinus) take over. They run over your sleeping bag, they squeal as they squabble over scraps and territory, they eat through your pack to get at food, and they even haul watches and knives away to store in inaccessible places under the hut.
