alpine whaling

We prepare the whale for our alpine whaling expedition at Mount Stirling.

We have a whale. His name is William the Third. Also known as Willie the Whale.

We take the whale down some gentle slopes. Getting the correct balance takes a bit of practise.

Then we take the whale on some steeper slopes. He gets up quite some speed, and the foot braking mechanism can lead to tumbling falls if misapplied.

Now whaling off into the sunset.
