While K2 base camp saw snow today, the Madison Mountaineering K2 expedition teams spirits are high and hopeful for good weather on the way! Expedition guide, Terray Sylvester, checks in with todays dispatch from K2 base camp:
Today was a snowy day here in base camp (4968m/16,300ft). We had another rest day – we kept ourselves busy by hiking around base camp and the Godwin-Austen Glacier, visiting with other teams, and enjoying lots of good food! So, we’re about to sit down to dinner and then we will watch a movie.
The forecast is calling for some sunshine tomorrow, so we’re looking forward to that and hopefully getting back on the mountain soon.
We’ll be in touch!
