12 Day Mountaineering Course Waiting on the Weather

I just got off the phone with Mike Janes, lead guide of the course. It is snowing lightly on the Eldridge Glacier and not flyable at this time. There are some low clouds here in Talkeetna; however things can change quickly and there is plenty of daylight to fly. Two days ago, the students moved up glacier on their own, to the landing strip. The guides followed a few hours later. All went well and they have been learning, learning and climbing a lot.
The group has requested beer, pizza and fruit....in that order and we will do our best to accommodate them. We hope to see their smiling faces here today and will keep you posted.
