skiing in summertime

Published 06.08 in category Spitsbergen crossing 2014

 

 

Another great day in Aasgardfonne, with 29,3 km done.

We are at the highest point 1220 m. Sun came out of clouds and it calmed down to a warm and windless day. We can see mountains on three sides now, and it reminds me a little of Antarctica. Incredible that we can have such a beautiful ski adventure in August.

All are performing extremely well and having a great time up here. Tomorrow we will head down in between mountains and smaller glaciers so that would be exciting. A few snowed in crevasses today but nothing difficult.

Our position: Lat79deg17’8″ Lon16deg52’55”
