We planned a short breakaway to Sodwana Bay during June 1996. The night before our departure from Harrismith we experience heavy snowfalls and most of the mountain passes towards KZN were closed. Our only option was to try going through Oliviershoek pass. The pass was closed but not manned, so we removed the barriers and went through. We travelled in heavy snow from Oliviershoek to Vryheid in KZN.
