This morning we woke to a little drifting- most of which had occurred on one snow shower pre midnight- and perfect navigation conditions!
We spent the day in the white room the group ticking off lots of legs relying on dead reckoning and feeling the ground- as we couldn't see it! I took over for the last hour and a half for a rapid descent in time to get back to the Lodge for a review and some individual debriefs.
