Dylan called at 3:15pm Pacific time.
Dylan indicated they are buried in deep new snow. Nobody is going anywhere today.
Last night there were a number of avalanches cutting down into the Gene Basin. Dylan counted at least fifteen. As a result, they are going to sit tight until things settle down. They are hoping that the snow will stabilize by morning. But if not, they'll sit it out for another day.
The sat phone broke up at this point and we lost contact.
