Woop woop ski field

Heading up to our remote air field that is used in summer tomorrow to collect some of our equipment that is used to build the ski way. Since summer the vehicles have been sitting up there waiting till the sea ice is thick enough. We will drive the gear the 50km from the plateau to the coast then from there we will then drive along the sea ice back to station, where we will carry out annual maintenance .

I have seen pictures of previous years and I'm expecting to find some very covered equipment. We have the GPS grid reference so we can find them under the snow!!! We will have to dig the gear out and then get it started in temperatures close to or below -50. Ill post some pictures when I get back.
