Elevation: 7,800'

We are on the Mountain!

After landing at Basecamp our team loaded our sleds, grabbed our packs and we were on our way.  We moved during the night to 7,800’ on the Kahiltna Glacier, located at the base of Ski Hill.  Everyone is doing well.  The weather has been beautiful- nice and warm during the day and good travel conditions at night.
