Jordy – Throwing the body into the crevasse.
After almost turning around within the first 100m due to the horrendous crust in the clearcut, we persisted, and as planned practiced our crevasse rescue scenarios off the north face of Mt Elgood. We don’t spend much time on glaciated terrain through the winter, so it’s a good idea to refresh before heading out on our annual spring ski traverse. This year we’re going to ski through the Gold Range from Mt Odin to Mt Macpherson. The ski descent off Elgood was much better than expected, the heavy powder ideal for skiing the steeps, and the crust manageable.
