Greg checked in this morning from Camp Muir: the team is in the middle of a great week on Mt. Rainier – despite the weather conditions! The opposite in fact is true; the rough conditions are providing some perfect training opportunities for the crew, most of who have their eyes on Denali this year or next.
40-50mph winds and some fresh snow yesterday, resulted in 1-2 feet of new/drifted snow this morning. Conditions today are a little better with lighter winds… “We’re going to do our best to be outside all day today!”, said Greg.
More snow, but lighter winds are in the forecast for tomorrow with some nice weather theoretically coming in on Friday – we’ll see.
