The expedition participants woke up yesterday, May 3, with NW gale winds and -20°C. The skies were bright and beautiful weather. They put on their warmest clothes but soon had to take them off when the wind went down. The glacier’s surface was rough to begin with but got smoother later in the day, They skied 16 km in in 6 active hours. Now there are 145 km behind them and the reached the 2,000 meters mark above sea level. The glacier’s highest point on their route is getting closer and when that is reached their speed is going to increase.
