Kahiltna Base Camp becomes an international city climbers from around the world with several languages being spoken. If it snows a lot then everybody there has to get out and pack the runway; a task people are more than happy to do!
There are over 100 people waiting to fly out! Here's some pictures from a couple years ago when I had to do some waiting and runway packing. ~blogger laura
