Vinson Massif: No Fly Zone

The storm finally hit.  Crazy clouds were forming over the upper mountain as we went to bed last night.  The morning at Vinson Base was devoid of sunshine and chock full of newly falling snow.  It is actually a rare thing to get five inches of powder snow in this place, like rain in the desert, but that is what we got.  Flying -either to get the successful summiteers out or to bring in our next team of climbers from Union Glacier- was not happening.  It was a hunker down day.  The word was that the teams up the mountain were doing the same.  Rest and relaxation wasn’t exactly an unwelcome plan for the day for my team.  Most had sore feet and tired knees after the last few big days of up and down walking.  Each climber is ready to be moving on when conditions permit, of course.  Juan wanted to be sure that Eva Maria knew he was wishing her a very happy 21st birthday from Antarctica

Best Regards,
RMI Guide Dave Hahn

Five inches of powder snow? Is it time for skiing? Be safe and hunker down! Thinking of you.
