The team returned from the Pika Glacier on Wednesday. They made the decision to return to Talkeetna a few days early due to heavy rain. The rain conditions made it difficult to practice skills that AMS Instructors Josh Hoeschen and Chelsea Bomba were teaching.
Yesterday the team departed for the Matanuska Glacier. As you can see from the picture Josh Hoeschen sent today, they are working on skills. Always good to have a plan B!
