I know that area well . Your trip is/was Amazing , especially sunrise in full snow over the Crosscut saw and sunny weather in snow on Mt Howitt. I day dream about doing that one day. Congratulations, well done. You both rock !
What kind of sick units would vandalize the Gantner hut?

Reading this again I think I would be more inclined to attempt this on BC XC touring skis with microspikes in the pack , and perhaps even with snow shoes strapped to the pack in case of a ski binding failure.

A great report and a trip I'd like to do. Don't know how I missed this thread.
Your "double rainbow" is known as a "Ringed Glory/Brocken Spectre", an unusual phenomenon you are lucky to have photograped.https://www.atoptics.co.uk/droplets/glory.htm

Skiing it would be easier I might ski out to Howitt this year. Forget the micro spikes and go straight to crampons.
