A Norland Air Twin Otter arrived at Summit Station around noon today (Summit time) after a one-day delay due to weather. This completes the put-in of people and supplies needed to prepare a new five-person team to operate the station from mid-February until mid-April.

“We are orienting and acclimating,” Tracy Sheeley (Summit operations manager) wrote in an email a little while ago.  “Happy to have the group all together at last…we had Team Iceland, Team Kanger, and now –  TEAM SUMMIT!”

The group will be busy with transition activities for the next week. To learn more about some of these, read this post:
