Our first day and we blitzed 15km in 4.5 hours of skiing. The surface is hard and fast with small sastrugi and the sky couldn't be clearer.

Keith decided to bring his fat bike and, much to my dismay, he is riding at double our pace towing his 90kg sled. I don't think he'll fare so well up the glacier or on the plateau but so far it's impressive.

It's so warm that we cooked dinner outside and are lounging around on our chairs. Won't be having any of that up high!
