Per skiing on fog and sun

Our position:

Lat78deg28’19” Lon17deg56’2″ Alt +478 m http://map.iridium.com/m?lat=78.472033&lon=017.933966

So, in the tent again.

Also today we had good weather, but more clouds and some very cold icy fog. No problem with navigation, even in fog, in case there are crevasses we just ski roped up.

Today we did 27 km and stopped a bit early to camp on good snow. This because we have good snow here, at 600 meters, further down we expect wetter conditions as we enter the meltzone.

Only 14 km left to the coast and we have already arranged pick up. We planned for 10 days and normally it would take that amount of days, it is the good conditions that enable us to do this trip in only 8 days.

We never get tired of enjoying the continuous mountain tops that keep popping up both to the left and right as we move forward.

It’s a happy bunch sitting in the tent sharing some cognac that Vince brought from France!
