Martyn Myer Hiking Near Chalet
“The idea of a hut that would be an extension of the relaxed luxury of the lodge was born on a mountaineering trip to Mount Cook, when several friends, guides and I were stuck in a blizzard in Plateau Hut. What bliss it was then to think of hot showers and warm comfortable beds.” – Martyn Myer.
