 Another great day today.

I don’t think I have ever seen such good conditions.

It was minus 8 degrees last night and the whole day we had a hard surface with very good glide.

Sun  from a blue sky and sometimes we skied in T-shirts, no wind at all.

We did 36 km. It is being one of the most beautiful summer ski expeditions I have been on.

So much variation with all the mountains and various glaciers coming in from the side. At the same time it’s safe.

Today again we met some crevasses areas but they were all snowed in and with the hard surface they were easy to cross.

Also today we saw some more ivory gulls and quite a lot of fox tracks zig zagging across the glacier.

We are now on a large snowfield called Lominisov Donna.

 Even got some suntan today!
