Covered in Snow and Digging Ourselves Out
Upon their arrival at Utsteinen, the members of BELARE 2008-2009 found the entrance to the garage covered by huge piles of snow. The same was true for everything else left outside from last year's expedition. The snow in front of the garage entrance was piled up almost to the roof. The station, on the other hand, we found to be completely uncovered by snow, just as the wind tunnel tests on a model of the station had predicted.
