12 day course update

AMS instructor Forest Wagner just called in from the Eldgride Glacier.

The team is doing great.  It has been cloudy and snowing for the past 2 days. The glacier has accumulated 6" of snow and the team is getting very good at glacier travel because of that.  Tomorrow, they plan to move their camp to a higher elevation on the glacier. They also plan to climb another peak or two before the end of thier course.

The weather report is looking good for the next few days so they are in for some fun days ahead.

Spirits are high and today marks the second birthday celebration during their course - Happy Birthday Carter!!!

It was Instructor Noah's Birthday on July 23rd.

Best,
Caitlin
