We heard overnight from Justin Merle and the Everest/Lobuche/Ama Dablam team. They all moved to Lobuche Base Camp today. Sounds like some weather has moved in and it was snowing in Khumbu today, and they have 8 inches of fresh snow on the ground.
The Annapurna/Chulu team also checked in, and they have also picked up several inches of snow today, but it is clearing in the evening. Charlotte, Lobsang, and the trekkers made it to Thorung Phedi today, below the pass. Tomorrow morning the trekkers will get an early start to make it over the pass, and Charlotte will head back to rejoin the Chulu team (who took another acclimatization day today at Yak Kharka. prior to moving to Chulu BC tomorrow).
