Due to work on the railway line, there was no gin train available for the 2018 Ski Hash. Instead, hashers had to drive to Geilo by car. All made it safely to the start of the run from Dr Butt's cabin, including one visitor and one guest, where a maxi-taxi collected us at approx. 2 p.m. and dropped us off at the ski centre in Havsdalen.

All skis were duly prepared with 'klister' because the snow was not fresh and rather rotten, before ON-ON was called, signalling the start of Ski Hash #15. The ski lifts (and as it turned out, the pubs as well) had closed for the season, so we had the trails more or less to ourselves.

The first part of the trail was more or less a re-run of the 2012 trail. Having skied for an hour or so, we found the first drink-stop, where hot chocolate fortified by some amber liquid was much enjoyed by the pack. The hare informed the pack that he had been a bit unsure of the guest's proficiency on skis so the return trail was back the same way as we had come and not up and over a mountain as originally planned.

As it was downhill all the way, it did not take us long to get back to Havsdalen for a mobile drink-stop with all pubs closed. Having enjoyed the beer and worked on our suntans, the last part of the trail, a by now obligatory steep descent, took us down to the hotel Dr. Holms and the ON-INN.

The after-ski-bar, which is usually cram packed, did not open until 6 p.m. so we had to make do with another (and nearly empty) bar in the hotel for the end-of-the-trail beer.

A few minutes' walk saw us at Flasher and Groupie's cabin for the circle. In addition to the various misdemeanours punished in the circle, More For Less was celebrated with her 200th run with BH3! There was no ice block available, so the Harriette was placed on a pile of snow instead.

The evening was rounded off at Dr Butt's cabin where some wonderful nosh was served, washed down with wine and beer.
