Day 2

We slept in a little longer since the first day became a hard one. After breakfast with started doing some drilling in pitching tents, and worked on our routines. The team have now improved immensely and has started working very well together.

Due to the forecast of the day, which were rain and possibly heavy winds, we wanted to gain as much altitude as possible in our search for snow. The last part of the day we roped up and started skiing as soon as we found snow.  It started raining and the whole group got soaking wet. We pitched camp in record speed and started the burners to cook food and dry clothes. Perfect end of the day.

We managed to cover 7,3 km
