Some Snow at Everest Base Camp
The beautiful weather of the rest break has been snapped by some snow and fog at Everest Base Camp. Here’s expedition leader Garrett Madison with the day’s dispatch:
Hello! This is Garrett calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Everest and Lhotse expedition team. Today is Saturday, April 30th and we’re in Everest Base Camp.
It’s been snowing and foggy today. It’s supposed to have some snow tomorrow and little more cloudy weather for the next day or two, but we’re all doing great. We did some training today out on the Khumbu Icefall and Glacier just next to base camp and everyone’s doing good here in base camp.
Our small private team of Kenton Cool, Rebecca Louise, and Elia Saikaly are all up at Camp 2 (on an acclimitization rotation). They will be coming down in the next couple of days.
All’s well here on Mount Everest, we’re acclimatizing, we’re doing great, watching lots of movies after dinner, and enjoying our time here. We’ll check in soon, thanks!
