Well the snow continues to pile up. Our storm board is reading 68 cm of snow in the past 36-hour period. The wind has been picking up, intensifying the storm. Turns out, this storm is a little bigger then they first thought.

We spent three hours this morning digging out our tents and the cook tent. We’re all staying busy here on the glacier, experiencing the other part of Alaska, the weather.

Well not too much else to report, hopefully we’ll be off the glacier sooner then later.

Good luck on the climb. Have fun walking up and down the runway at base camp. Been there and done that.
