A Special Shift Change

Varying visibility due to BLSN.

For the past two weeks we have modified our shift change schedule to allow for holiday travels. Today my shift met at the base at seven A.M. and packed the snowcat for the summit. We did not arrive to the summit until almost four and a half hours later. Blowing snow and high winds made the trip difficult with many breaks taken to stop and wait for it to “clear” so we could move forward; sometimes just a few feet at a time. Ultimately the blowing snow settled down and we began to clear a bit, allowing for a speedy end to our travels.
